Find out how to visit the Sanctuary.
One of our objectives is to raise awareness of the plight of great apes at the local, national and international levels. Only with education will action be taken to protect wild great ape populations and promote the sustainable management of tropical forest ecosystems. Responsible and low-impact tourism provides an opportunity for an educational, yet enjoyable, experience.
As previous victims of the bushmeat trade, gorillas at the PGFV Sanctuary now act as important ambassadors for great ape conservation in central Africa. Visitors will also get to meet local Gabonese staff who are there to help raise awareness on gorilla conservation in Gabon.
