MOUNTAIN GORILLAS - Second grand naming ceremony

Here's AllAfrica.com with news of the second annual Gorilla Naming ceremony.
Wildlife conservationists will yet again celebrate the fruits of their efforts to save the rare mountain gorilla from extinction with the second grand gorilla-naming ceremony on June 17.

The ceremony will also be an opportunity to raise sponsorship revenues from the local corporate firms and organisations under the 'Adopt a Baby Gorilla' scheme.

Ms. Rosette Rugamba, the director general of ORTPN, the national wildlife body in Rwanda, told Business Week in an interview that names will be given to 12 baby primates, born since late last year.
