Protect gorillas on the brink of extinction - donate your old mobile phone today!


How your old mobile phone protects endangered gorillas

One of the biggest threats to gorillas is the illegal mining of coltan, a mineral used in mobile phones - YOU can help protect gorillas in their natural habitat by donating your old phone. Your donation really makes a difference:

  1. Money raised from donated phones will support rangers in the Democratic Republic of Congo to protect Mountain Gorillas (approximately 850 individuals left in the wild).
  2. Donated phones will be refurbished and resold to disadvantaged community groups internationally. This not only reduces the demand for coltan mining in threatened gorilla habitats but also helps people in these communities improve their economic capacity.

Since 2008, over 114,000 phones have been donated and reused or recycled through They're Calling on You, raising more than $208,000 for crucial primate conservation.
