Year of The Gorilla

This is the official press release from IGCP (the International Gorilla Conservation Programme.

Unveiling a new era for communicating its work to practitioners and the public alike, the International Gorilla Conservation Programme (IGCP) has announced an entirely new website,, which will go “live” on Tuesday, January 25th.

Opening during the UN Convention on Migratory Species designated Year of the Gorilla, the new site promises greatly enhanced interactivity, a fresh new look and improved navigation. Visitors will now be able to read the IGCP’s gorilla blog on the site, as well as follow and comment on the ups and downs, challenges and successes, passions and commitments of its staff and partners in their work to save the world’s approximately 700 remaining Mountain Gorillas, which live on the misty slopes of the Virunga Volcanoes Range and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest areas bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda.

“The fresh approach to this new site not only celebrates the Year of the Gorilla, it also brings mountain gorilla conservation and our work closer to the people, both locally and internationally,” enthused IGCP Communications Officer Jamie Kemsey. “With dedicated Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Flickr pages, as well our blog and many additional new features and pages, IGCP is poised to communicate to a broader audience and communicate more effectively. This will get more people involved, and in the end, spread knowledge and bring greater benefit to the mountain gorillas, and the local communities which are our partners in this vital conservation initiative to save them. We are excited about the new site’s possibilities and future growth, and will work with our visitors and partners on continuing this growth even after Year of the Gorilla ends in 2010.”
