MAYANI WITH BABY GIRL
In a double celebration, Dublin Zoo also announced the birth of another healthy baby gorilla born to first-time mum, Mayani, on Friday 16th September. The baby arrived just days after the gorillas moved to their superb new habitat.
The animal care team are delighted to confirm the baby gorilla is female. Mayani is cradling the infant close to her chest and both Mum and baby are thriving.
The Gorilla Rainforest is the biggest and most exciting development undertaken by Dublin Zoo in a number of years. A total of 12,000 square metres of undulating topography was inspired by the lowland rainforest of western Africa, home to western lowland gorillas.
