While the official celebratory year dedicated to the mountain gorillas is officially coming to an end, the campaign towards conserving their environment and species continues and will remain a major focus of the conservation fraternity in Uganda, Rwanda, and the eastern Congo.

The Uganda Wildlife Authority this year also invented a new way to stay in touch with the prized animals through www.friendagorilla.org where against a modest fee of US$1 a particular gorilla can be made a friend through Facebook and similar social network sites. Take some time over the holiday season, visit the site, and make friends with a gorilla, all in the name of conservation.

It is confirmed that the annual “Kwita Izina” festival is once again on in Rwanda in 2010 when the newborn gorilla babies are expected to be formally named again. No details on the plans for celebrations in Uganda for next year are available to this column yet but will be reported just as soon as the particulars are at hand.
