Good News from the MGVP!

I just received word from Molly Feltner from the Mountain Gorilla Veterinarian Project in Rwanda that, as of today, the baby gorilla that had the snare entangled around it's neck, is now free. Dr. Mike Cranfield had to return once again to Uganda to intervene and, this time, he was able to dart the female, keep the silverback at bay, and remove the snare from around the baby's neck. If you recall, we reported on that little guy when we first arrived in Africa. It has taken the dedicated staff of MGVP just over 3 weeks to help that one animal.  I'm sure you will agree that this organization, it's dedicated veterinarians, and the potential for more happy endings is worthy of your support.

Yours in Art and Conservation,
