Gorilla Conservation Project | Rooms 1 & 2


This story begins with Ivan, the gorilla in the the novel The One and Only Ivan.  The students listened the story his life in a concrete domain in a mall and later found out that his story is actually a true story.  Ivan eventually left his mall habitat and joined a troop of gorillas at Zoo Atlanta.  After a visit to the Calgary Zoo, we were able to compare Ivan's life in captivity with that of the Western Lowland Gorillas at the zoo.  By chance, many of us also had the opportunity for some very up close observations of the new baby gorilla along side her mother and father.  Back at school, we voted on the name of the baby gorilla through a zoo naming contest and many students chose Kimani (connected by "K" to Kioja - the mom and Kakinga - the dad). Later that month, the zoo announced that the baby's father, great silverback Kakinga had passed away.  The loss of this gentle giant left many students (and teachers) with a feeling of sadness.  One of the zoo's purposes is to help visitors make a personal connection to its animals in hopes that it will promote conservation in the wild and Kakinga definitely left an impression on us.  In Kakinga's memory, our classes began a Gorilla Conservation Project to collect used cell phones.  Cell phones contain coltan, a mineral that is mined from gorilla habitat.  The students worked in groups to write scripts that they presented to each classroom in the school, along side a collection box decorated with Kakinga's picture.  After three weeks, we had collected 166 cell phones to be recycled at the Calgary Zoo.


“I'm so excited that I'm actually helping animals. Usually, I just read about them or draw them. So it's so exciting to be able to help endangered animals." - Grade 3 Student
