Celebrating 30 years of gorilla conservation What does it take to save endangered gorillas in their habitat in Africa? If you ask Tara Stoinski—President and CEO of Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International (DFGFI)—she’d say it requires long-term protection and daily monitoring in the forests. Oracle has been a long-time supporter of DFGFI and since 2014, we’ve hosted all of their data—the world’s largest longitudinal collection of data on any wild gorilla population—for free.
