STORYLINE
At a ceremony in Rwanda, United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed named a baby gorilla ‘courage,’ calling for leaders around the world to manifest this important attribute. The country’s President, Paul Kagame, emphasized the importance of partnerships in protecting the environment.

She spoke at a ceremony in Kinigi on 06 September, at the ‘Kwita Izina,’ a naming ceremony for baby gorillas. This year, 25 baby gorillas received names from various distinguished guests.

The Deputy Secretary-General named her designated baby gorilla “Ingoga”, which means courage.

The gorillas live in the volcanic Virunga Mountains straddling the borders of Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, covering a more than 8,000 square kilometres, and encompassing six active and three extinct volcanoes.

The local populations benefit from the gorillas, who attract tourists to the area.

Thanks to Rwanda’s conservation policy, the gorilla population is increasing. From 300 in 2003, the number of gorillas now exceeds 600.
