March Issue of Population Connection magazine

One of our Global Partners, which we’ve been working with for many years, addresses the human-wildlife challenges that exist at the edges of mountain gorilla rangeland in Uganda by improving the health and livelihoods of people and by protecting gorillas’ health, safety, and habitat. The Founder and CEO of Conservation Through Public Health, Dr. Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka, has a new memoir, Walking With Gorillas: The Journey of an African Wildlife Vet, out on March 14. We’ve reprinted the chapter about her organization’s family planning program in this issue. Please enjoy this excerpt and then read Dr. Gladys’s book and join us (and her!) for our Page Turners book club meeting on May 9.

Our only hope is to slow, and ultimately cease, the astronomical growth of the human population, to allow the earth to heal and support a smaller, stable population. I was thankful to find your organization as a conduit to contribute toward a better tomorrow, even though it is one that I will never see. Donna J. Warlick, Population Connection Member
