Bristol Zoo is delighted to announce the birth of a baby gorilla. The infant was born to mum, Touni, and dad Jock in the early hours of this morning (Saturday).
Our team who visited Cameroon led a practical workshop focusing on the use of new technologies for wildlife research. During the four-day workshop, which took place in Buffle Noir (Bénoué National Park), the staff members of Bénoué, Bouba Ndjida, Faro and Waza national parks were trained on how to pilot a drone, which will be used to track large mammals and illegal activities in the parks. We also showed the staff how to use a data collection application with a smartphone.
It was a double surprise for keepers who came into work last week to find two baby ring-tailed lemurs had been born overnight.
A group of penguins from Bristol Zoo has been donated to Bristol’s twinned city of Tbilisi in Georgia, which lost many of its zoo animals in a flash flood in 2015.
