Kwita Izina Gorilla Naming Ceremony

The naming of babies has long been an important part of life in Rwanda, with the birth of a new village member celebrated throughout the village with singing and dancing. Starting in 2005, this naming ceremony was extended to baby gorillas in the Gorilla Naming Ceremony. Researchers, tourists, and donors gather from around the world each June for this splendid ceremony, held together with the local people of Ruhengeri. Many contributions are gathered from gorilla lovers—both individuals and groups—and the money is used to protect the gorillas as well as to construct roads and schools in the villages at the base of the mountains and develop the ecotourism environment.
