Kwan in a Million

As zoo dads go, few are as popular as Kwan—our currently featured ADOPT. The silverback gorilla leader of a family troop at Regenstein Center for African Apes was recently reunited with his little one, Nayembi.

Like his daughter, Kwan has earned his own share of the spotlight. He appeared in the 2000 movie “Return to Me,” which was set in Chicago and starred Minnie Driver and David Duchovny. He played a gorilla named Sidney who moved into a spacious, new zoo habitat—not unlike the indoor/outdoor one Kwan lives in today.

ADOPT gift packages are a fun, informative way to share a love of wildlife and support animal care at Chicago’s free zoo.

ADOPT Kwan today!
