Rwanda's mountain gorillas were being poached toward extinction. Diane Fossey's love for these animals - whose DNA is so like our own that we can get or give diseases among us - was such a threat to the livelihood of the poachers that they murdered her.
Today, after Rwanda's obscene and bloody wars, great numbers of children are attending schools in Diane Fossey's name to learn to conserve the forest and all its animals. Learning ways to earn a living without poaching, they are the hope of the future. On the Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope program on Public Television I saw the children, but it seems to me they were all boys. Where are the girls? Am I mistaken?
