The Great Apes Film initiative (GAFI), partnered with the Gorilla Organization launched a brand new gorilla conservation project in Western Uganda -- Africa's very first pedal powered cinema for gorilla conservation. Gorilla conservation documentaries have been shown to school children and communities in some of the most rural villages on the edge of Mgahinga National Park.

Conservation education is now reaching remote communities, villages with no electricity who have never before been able to see films. In the three weeks in October 2010 that the project has been running 11,600 school children, 184 teachers, 110 soldiers and 46 park rangers, all living around the Ugandan gorilla habitats, have seen the films. That is a tremendous outcome for conservation education in Uganda. Well done GAFI! Donate to GAFI http://www.gafi4apes.org/

You can now take part in this project on a voluntour in July and October 2011 for 2 weeks. You can visit GAFI's partner The Great Projects on www.thegreatprojects.com for more information. Or follow this link for the Great Gorilla Project voluntour
