I am a primate conservationist working for WWF-Central African Republic and I work on habituating gorillas.

Habituating great apes to human presence is important for conservation as it not only increases scientific knowledge and understanding of the species, it can also generate funding for conservation activities and revenue for local economies, strengthening the link between conservation and communities. Every day with the gorillas is special and every moment is unforgettable. I feel proud to be able to do my fair share that these species are protected.
