THE ELLEN DEGENERES WILDLIFE FUND

"When you realize the value of all life, you dwell less on what is past and concentrate more on the preservation of the future.” ― Dian Fossey, final journal entry, 1985

EDWF in Partnership with Edward Charles Foundation

The Ellen Degeneres Wildlife Fund was established to support global conservation efforts for critically endangered species. Building a permanent home for The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund is the first initiative of the Ellen Degeneres Wildlife Fund. This project will permanently secure the future of wild gorillas in Rwanda by building on successful field conservation efforts, while empowering the people living near the gorillas to thrive in relationship to their own ecosystem.
