Gorillas rise against the odds in Rwanda

Oct 29, 2019 16:10 IST

In Rwanda, an ongoing conservation campaign has helped bring mountain gorillas back from the brink of extinction. The efforts include monitoring each and every gorilla in the Volcanoes National Park. In case of any emergency, the gorillas are given immediate treatment on the site. The total number of mountain gorillas has risen from 680 a decade ago to over a 1,000. Each year Rwanda holds a naming ceremony for baby gorillas, called Kwita Izina, inviting celebrities to name gorillas born in the past 12 months. The purpose of the event is to bring all the conservation work into the limelight and help people learn about gorillas.
