Class is in Session!
Mariah Saves Gorilla is committed to Action through Education and believes that passion for a cause grows with knowledge and understanding-- The more you know, the more you can DO to affect positive change! When I started this project, I knew very little about Dian Fossey or gorillas and watching a documentary inspired me to want to learn more and do something to help save these great apes. So the foundation of my conservation efforts has been fueled by a personal desire to know more (lots of research) and the realization that people generally know very little about the dangers gorillas face or how the environment impacts their safety. When my family visited the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund in 2009, I also learned that there are few programs in the United States that specifically teach about gorilla conservation and those that do are most often the efforts of individuals committed to change. This section of my website is dedicated to LEARNING and promoting gorilla-based environmental conservation education- which (I hope) will expand your knowledge not only of endangered gorillas, but also of the environment, the effects of E-waste, and the importance of recycling.
Side note: WORK IN PROGRESS! Your patience is appreciated as this section is developed as I believe that this is the MOST IMPORTANT part of my new website. Please check back often as updates will be made daily. Thanks!!
