National Geographic readers can vote for the name of a gorilla baby

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Rwanda’s Kwita Izina gorilla naming ceremony, Visit Rwanda has asked National Geographic social audiences to help choose the name for one of the baby mountain gorillas being named this year. Social media users can vote for their preferred name from two options on the National Geographic Facebook page and Twitter account.

The baby gorilla to be named through this exciting conservation campaign is an adventurous female infant from the Kwitonda family. A daughter to Icyamamare, the baby gorilla was born on July 1, 2018 in Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda. The Kwitonda family is made of 34 gorillas including three silverbacks, nine adult females, three blackbacks, five sub-adults, four juveniles and 10 infants.
