    About This Project

    Habituation of gorillas is an increasingly popular strategy to improve the conservation status of these critically endangered species and to create sustainable economic value for national parks through tourism. Yet, it is a high-risk strategy with increasing risks of pathogen spillover. The project aims to study the diseases in the Moukalaba Doudou NP, Gabon, and establish gorilla health protocols to prevent spillover either way with humans.
