World Environment Day

World Environment Day

Happy Kids, June 5 is World Environment Day! The United Nations holds World Environment Day from a different country each year and this year they are in Rwanda. Rwanda is a small land-locked country in central Africa.

Rwanda is home to the amazing Silver-backed Gorilla. It is the only place where they live in the world.

Many years ago a scientist named Dian Fossey went to live with the Gorillas to study them. They made a movie about her life called “Gorillas in the Mist”.

Scientists now say that there are only 700 gorillas left in the wild, so we need to get the word out to help save them.

In this presentation we meet some of the gorillas that Dian Fossey lived among and a brave man Jean Bosco Bizimuremyi who works there among the gorillas.

You will meet Pablo the Silverback Gorilla.
