 Every year, Rwanda hosts Kwita Izina (Gorilla Naming Ceremony) inspired by the ancient Rwandan tradition of naming babies soon after they are born. This year Kwita Izina will be on 1st September 2017. As we celebrate Rwanda’s achievements in biodiversity conservation, we are happy to share with you (in pictures) how Mafubo (baby Gorilla) named by ARCOS’ Executive Director is doing. 

Mafubo means “someone who has an excellent character.” Her mother is called Nezerwa from Amahoro Group. 

Enjoy the tour to Mafubo Habitat and family and happy Gorilla Naming Ceremony 2017!
