Rwanda Baby Gorilla Named

RwandaIn a June 6th post, Wanna Name a Baby Gorilla? I discussed a contest in Rwanda to name twelve baby gorillas. The naming contest, the second annual, is designed to promote tourism in Rwanda.

The first of the gorilla naming contest results were announced yesterday, Saturday.

baby gorillaSo far only one of the twelve baby gorilla names have been announced: , named by Jeremy Macadie, UK ambassador to Rwanda.

Macadie‚Äôs hope is that Big Ben and the other eleven baby gorillas will do for Rwanda what the Big Ben clock in London does for the UK — attract tourists.

As soon as the names of the other eleven Rwandan baby gorillas are released I will post them here.
