Alex and the Ingagis

When he was yet a boy, he organized various non-profits project to save and protect wildlife. His first non-profit project was to preserve the wildlife in San Diego. At the young age of 12 years, he participated in beach clean-ups to save flora and fauna and preserve biodiversity.
He is also the council leader of a local charity where he helps the homeless by offering them food. He also helps the veterans in the area. Apart from this, he also helps to protect the Ingagi, i.e., Silverback Gorillas in The Virunga National Park.
Alex first came across the condition of Ingagis through Dian Fossey. She was his role model who strived to stop the poaching of Silverbacks at Virunga National Park. She inspired others by writing to protect and save the Gorillas. Unfortunately, she was martyred in her fight to save the innocent animals.
The Ingagis are Mountain Gorillas that live in the forests of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. These animals are critically endangered due to poaching activities. Following her legacy, The Dian Fossey Gorilla Foundation was created to save the Ingagis.
This organization works by collecting funds and organizing research and a task force to protect the gorillas from poachers. It also helps to prevent the spread of disease and protect the habitat of Ingagis.
Inspired by her work, Alex launched Ingagis Clothing. 15% proceeds from the sale of clothes go to The Dian Fossey Gorilla Foundation. This initiative by Alex is a perfect combination of entrepreneurship and activism. He is working on expanding the brand to spread awareness about the plight of the Ingagis and protect them.
