Walking with Gorillas


“I recommend this book to everyone interested in conservation, alleviating poverty, and the role of women in society. But perhaps most importantly, it is a truly inspiring story of how one determined and dedicated woman overcame many setbacks and faced many dangers to follow and realize her dream.”

—JANE GOODALL, PhD, DBE and UN Messenger of Peace

Dr. Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka, Uganda’s first wildlife veterinarian, tells the remarkable story of her life protecting critically endangered mountain gorillas. In the face of discrimination in a male-dominated world, one woman’s passion and determination to build a brighter future offers inspiration and insights into what is truly possible for our planet when we come together.

Through her innovative NGO, Conservation Through Public Health, Dr. Gladys has helped revolutionize conservation throughout the world with a focus on the integrated health of humans and wildlife. She has received many awards including the 2021 UN Environment Programme’s Champion of the Earth and the 2022 Edinburgh Medal for Science. ‘Walking with Gorillas’ is the story of her incredible journey.

‘Walking with Gorillas’ is published by Arcade Press. Hardback 20. It is also available in Kindle form on Amazon
