Rwanda named two-dozen baby mountain gorillas in an annual ceremony Saturday that highlights the African country's efforts to protect the endangered animals, which attract large numbers of foreign tourists to the volcano-studded forests where they live.

"As you know in my country, the panther is the animal. It represents me a lot because I'm proud of being African. We have beautiful nature so we have to take care of it."

"It's a privilege for me to name little baby Iriza, which means 'first born',” Bellerin added.

“When you're the first born in your family, you feel a sense of responsibility, and it's our responsibility to look after our wildlife."

Conservation efforts such as these have begun to make a difference for gorillas. In November 2018, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) changed their status from Critically Endangered to Endangered, but there is more work ahead.

The Kwita Izina ceremony also serves as an opportunity to recognise the good work done by the rangers, researchers and trackers who work to protect the species, and the communities who live around Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park.
