Saving a Species, One Gorilla at a Time
There are fewer than 900 Mountain Gorillas left on earth. One group has taken a unique approach to protecting this endangered species… providing veterinary care to wild gorillas. Host Charity Nebbe talks with Dr. Mike Cranfield Co-Director of Gorilla Doctors. Gorilla Doctors employs more than a dozen veterinarians and health experts in the countries where mountain gorillas live, providing health programs for the gorillas. He was one of the first veterinarians to embrace the One Health concept for great ape conservation.
