Join Dr Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka, Uganda’s first wildlife vet, for the launch of Walking with Gorillas in Joburg (7 Aug)
 More about the book!

Jonathan Ball Publishers and Exclusive Books invite you to the launch of Walking With Gorillas: The Journey of an African Wildlife Vet by Dr Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka.

In her enchanting memoir, Kalema-Zikusoka, Uganda’s first wildlife veterinarian, tells the remarkable story from her animal-loving childhood to her career protecting endangered mountain gorillas and other wild animals.

‘Her story is amazing and 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. She has made a huge difference to conservation in Uganda and she is an inspiring example to young-and not so young-people everywhere.’ – Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE and UN Messenger of Peace, from the Foreword
