Welcome to the G4G Website

Gearing Up 4 Gorillas (G4G) is a registered charity based in Dorset, southern England.

G4G is the only UK charity that focuses 100% on the conservation of the rare mountain gorilla in Virunga National Park, eastern DR Congo, through providing funding and equipment to the rangers whose job it is to protect them.

Join us in helping provide what the rangers need and make a real difference to the future of the mountain gorilla. Whilst the mountain gorillas may be many miles away, G4G has proven that practical assistance can be directed to where it really matters - to the rangers at the sharp end.

G4G supports the fallen rangers of Virunga

G4G sponsored Virunga Chief Warden Emmanuel de Merode, who successfully ran the Virgin Money London Marathon in April 2017. The G4G sponsorship of £5,000 was match funded ‘£ for £’ by

The World We Want Foundation, making £10,000, which will all go to the Fallen Rangers Fund.

This fund provides a financial safety net and ongoing support for the widows and children of Virunga rangers killed in the line of duty. Over 160 rangers have been killed in the line of duty over the past 20 years protecting the wildlife in Virunga National Park.

Thank you to all our supporters who made this sponsorship possible.
