Ian Redmond is a tropical field biologist and conservationist renowned for his work with great apes and elephants. For more than 35 years, he has been associated with Mountain Gorillas, through research, filming, tourism, and conservation work. He has served as Ambassador for the UN Year of the Gorilla in 2009 and the UNEP Convention on Migratory Species in 2010.

As with his mentor, the late Dr. Dian Fossey, the main focus of his work shifted in 1978 from research to conservation after poachers killed Digit – a young silverback in one of the Karisoke study groups – to sell his skull and hands. Finding the headless, handless body of a gorilla, he regarded as a friend was a turning point in his life. Ten years later, in Kenya, the shock was repeated when some of the cave elephants he was studying were killed by ivory poachers.
