The POLE POLE FOUNDATION

 (POPOF)  is a grass roots ngo working to protect the critically-endangered eastern  lowland (grauer's) gorillas which live in the Kahuzi-Biega National Park, in the  Democratic Republic of Congo.

We do this by working with the local communities to end their reliance on the unique rainforest habitat which is the gorillas' home.  

Education and community-led sustainable development projects go hand in hand with conservation.

Big News!

Don't miss the documentary film 'Silverback' which is going to be shown on BBC2 at 9pm on Sunday, 7th January 2024.

It was filmed with our help at the beginning of last year and highlights one of the big dilemmas we face in conservation today.

We'd love to know your thoughts afterwards!
