About Us

Since most people can’t make it to the jungles of Africa, we are pretending the jungles are in Austin, Texas. Keep your eyes open on January 21, 2012, when hundreds of people dressed as mountain gorillas will run through the streets of downtown Austin. The proceeds from this event driectly benefit The Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund, protecting the endangered Mountain Gorilla by creating jobs in Uganda, Rwanda, and the DR Congo.
