Gorilla News

We are well into our wet season and have measured an amazing 415mm (16.5 inches) of rain for March and still have April and May ahead of us. Very exciting news is the birth of 2 new babies, one from Isabukuru (research family) and the other from our very own Sabyinyo family bringing their family to 16 individuals. Herewith a few photos of Sabyinyo’s newcomer kindly given to us by one of our guests, Kim Williams, who saw this little one the morning after it’s birth. T hese little ones are born after a gestation period of 9 months and are fully dependent on their mother’s care and will seldom leave her sight for the first two and a half years of their lives. They are born at roughly half the weight of a human baby at onl y one and a half kilograms.
