Birth of a buff-cheeked gibbon

The buff-cheeked gibbon family (Nomascus gabriellae) has recently expanded with the birth of a baby on May 20th. It now gathers 4 individuals: the 15-year-old breeding pair, a young male born in 2012 and the newborn whose sex is yet unknown. The baby, who is doing well, firmly holds onto its mother's belly.

Movement in our chimp group (part 4)

After the successful introduction between Lily, Sanaga and Homer, the chimpanzee EEP has given us its green light for transferring and adding a new female of Pan troglodytes troglodytes subspecies to our group. The EEP chose Bamia, a 12 years-old female born at Plzen Zoo in Czech Republic.
