–Simon Curtis gets support from pal Debby Ryan at the The Uganda Wildlife Authority’s A Rumble in the Jungle Event at Sony Studios in CA on Monday evening. Earlier this year, Simon, along with Jason Biggs & Kristy Wu made a trip over to Uganda for the launch of the Friend-A-Gorilla campaign to promote and educate the world about Uganda’s mountain gorillas. The footage from the trip was made into a documentary, which was shown at the event last night.
With only about 720 mountain gorillas left in the world, Uganda – having a little over half the worlds population of this highly endangered species – has stepped up efforts to involve the whole world in our conservation initiative. In doing so we hope to educate the public, spark your interest, and have you become a close friend of these endangered gentle giants. You can friend your own gorilla for just $1 at friendagorilla.org.
