Mark Attwater

Mark is an expert in rehabilitating captive gorillas and reintroducing them into their natural habitats. Invited to work in the Congo, he single-handedly solved some of the problems associated with this particular species.

Aside from establishing the Brazzaville Gorilla Rescue Centre he also established an efficient legal confiscation procedure for CITES-listed primates. In addition, he rehabilitated, medically and socially, 22 orphan gorillas; implemented a successful reintroduction project; raised the awareness of the general public on the legal status of gorillas; and trained Congolese staff in gorilla rehabilitation and management.
