    The Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund (DWCF) has given more than $2 million to support conservation projects that protect primates. And the DWCF and Disney’s Animals Programs teamed up with the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International and several Association of Zoos and Aquariums-accredited facilities (the Dallas, Denver and Houston zoos) to build and operate GRACE (Gorilla Rehabilitation and Conservation Education Center) in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa.

    The GRACE facility is where baby gorillas orphaned through poaching can be rehabilitated for eventual reintroduction to the wild and currently is home to 12 orphaned gorillas, with 3 more arriving soon.

    If I could be anything I wanted to be, I'd do this for a living. Unfortunately, I'm a bit too old for these sorts of adventures.
