Several organizations do, but the two most high-profile are probably the Jane Goodall Institute and the Gorilla Foundation (most famous for conductin interspecies communication research with Koko the Gorilla). The Gorilla Foundation’s mission is to bring interspecies communication
to the public in order to save gorillas from imminent extinction, and inspire future generations to create a sustainable future for all great apes. Goodall was recently named patron of the Year of the Gorilla campaign, which seeks to improve the management of national and cross-border primate populations, as well as those living in national parks, by strengthening cooperation between range states and providing improved support for rangers and other key personnel.
There are various organizations that work toward protecting gorillas. The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, which protects mountain gorillas, is one of these organizations. Here is more information about this organization, which began in 1992: http://www.informatics.org/gorilla/
The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has worked hard to protect mountain gorillas for 40 years. The International Gorilla Conservation Programme (IGCP) is an initiative of the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF), Fauna and Flora International (FFI), and WWF. WWF has also teamed up with the World Conservation Society to help the Cross River Gorilla, which is the most endangered African great ape.
Also, Ian Redmond, the United Nations Ambassador for Year of Gorillas, recently asked the Nigerian Senate to enact laws to protect gorillas in Nigeria. Wildlife organizations have also put forth efforts to convince lawmakers to help protect gorillas.
