The Earth School – Gorillas in our Midst!

The Problem

The purpose of this project is to allow children to experience the magic of a face to face encounter with a family of mountain gorillas.

Our Plan

Due to age restrictions in Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park, young children cannot see gorillas in the wild. Our school community will recreate the experience of visiting a mountain gorilla family with the help of fantastic costumes and actors modeling gorilla behavior. This presentation will take place in a wooded area of our green campus. Music, narration, and reflection will enrich the experience and foster awareness of gorilla conservation issues and the links that unite all life on Earth.
