France Supports YoG with Generous Contribution



UNEP/GRASPThe Year of the Gorilla benefited very much from a contribution of €100,000 by the Government of France, which was received by YoG Partner GRASP (UNEP Great Ape Survival Partnership) and used to implement several YoG activities, including the Rapid Response Assessment “Last Stand of the Gorilla – Environmental Crime and Conflict in the Congo Basin”. Further to this contribution, France also organized a large YoG event at the Museum of Natural History in Paris, which was aimed particularly at children and youths. We thank France for this generous support!
