I LOVE seeing pictures of

I LOVE seeing pictures of Nayembi with her mom. I'm so happy that she is able to have consistent contact with other gorillas, even if it's just her mom. It's so important.
Keep those pics coming!

Thank You

We love seeing them as well. It's a testament to the hard work of our caregivers--and, of course, Rollie and Nayembi too--to see how well the baby gorilla has integrated back into her group.
