#repost @savinggorillas ・・・ Any @nfl @saints fans out there? We were thrilled to welcome @Drewbrees to our Karisoke Research Center in Rwanda this week!⠀ ⠀ Karisoke was founded by #DianFossey in 1967 and started off as just two small tents in the forest. Today, it has grown into a #conservation hub for scientists and researchers from all over the world!⠀ ⠀ Learn more about Karisoke -- and plan YOUR trip to see us -- on the web (link in bio!) 🦍🦍⠀ ⠀ #conservation #rwanda #gorillas #neworleans #saints #weneedgorillas
