Dian Fossey is remembered throughout the world for her heroic struggle to preserve, protect and study the mountain gorilla. She founded the Digit Fund (later renamed the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International)
She Lived With Gorillas For 18 Years In Rwanda. After Digit's death, her and her assistants started going out on armed patrols around the gorilla habitat.
