Brenau and the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International

The Dian Fossey exhibit celebrates the life and work of primatologist Dian Fossey. This is the first time her personal items and artifacts have been available for viewing by the public.

The exhibit consists of artifacts taken from Fossey’s cabin in Karisoke after her murder. These artifacts had previously been stored in a facility in Atlanta, by the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International. Some items of interest in the exhibit are Fossey’s recording equipment, confiscated poacher’s snares and weapons, and the uncorrected proofs of her famous book, Gorillas in the Mist.

The exhibit is made possible through a collaboration between Brenau University and the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International.
