"Our commitment is to conservation, through captive breeding, education and reintroduction. We are working in some of the world’s most fragile environments to save endangered animals and return them to the wild." [1]

"The UK-registered charity The Aspinall Foundation was founded in 1984, the vision of which has always been to contribute to global species conservation through integrating ex-situ and in-situ activities. The foundation’s flagship project, the ongoing western lowland gorilla rescue and reintroduction programme, was initiated in 1987 in Congo, and was expanded to neighbouring Gabon in 1998." [1]

"The Foundation is now funded by donations from around the world from, among others, Zac Goldsmith and Trudie Styler, and raises millions of pounds from its Ormeley Dinners, which are held every couple of years. His children take an active interest in the Foundation, and Aspinall says he hopes they will carry on the work after his death. " [2]
