Nayembi Reunited

Baby gorilla Nayembi has been reintroduced to her mom, Rollie, and mother-and-daughter pair Bana and Patty behind the scenes at Regenstein Center for African Apes. As this video shows, the group, including Nayembi and Rollie, are getting along well!

The four gorillas will remain off public view—and continue to receive 24-hour-a-day care—as they adjust to the new group dynamic. Looking forward, the zoo’s animal care experts still hope to reintroduce the whole gorilla family group, including silverback Kwan.



So brave, so strong. Keep up the great work baby gorilla. We're pulling for you!!!!
