On the occasion of World Gorillas Day, an endangered species, PSG players participated in a ceremony organized



Unusual moment this Friday for four PSG players.

Neymar, Kylian Mbappé, Sergio Ramos and Marquinhos participated from Paris in World Gorilla Day.

The Parisian stars named three Rwandan gorillas during a ceremony, the Kwita Izina, organized every year since 2005 by one of the sponsors of the club in the capital, Visit Rwanda.

“The names Ingeri, Nshongore and Mudasumbwa to three gorillas born during the season.

These names, chosen after a first selection by the Rwandan conservatives, are linked to the life and the family of the baby gorillas ”, explains the PSG.

Endangered species, classified as "critically endangered", the gorilla is highlighted by the government of Rwanda, land on which 380 of these monkeys live.

Arthus-Bertrand also present

Since 2005, the Kwita Izina ceremony has gone from ancestral tradition to a global event.

French ecologist Yann Arthus-Bertrand also participated in this ceremony this Friday afternoon.

"The main objective of this symbolic naming ceremony for baby gorillas is to help monitor each gorilla and their groups in their natural habitat," says the organizer, who invites personalities from all walks of life to promote gorilla conservation.

Happy World Gorilla Day!
