A new female gorilla has arrived!

Maïsha, a 7 1/2-years-old female western lowland gorilla (Gorilla gorilla gorilla), has just arrived at La Palmyre Zoo. She was born in Beauval in 2008 and transferred to La Palmyre following a recommendation of the EEP. She has joined our group that includes one silverback, two females and a young male.

Birth of two orangutans

La Palmyre Zoo has recorded the birth of two Bornean orangutans (Pongo pygmaeus) only three weeks apart! We're announcing these births tardily because we wanted to ensure the health of the females and their babies, which can now be seen in the ape building.
