Gorilla's Group - Leader
Gorilla was kept as a pet with 2 other chimps by a man who was rarely in the country, and did not provide adequate care. Both of his cagemates died just before the rescue in 1995. Gorilla is estimated as born in 1989, and is now the leader of a group of 6 chimps. He is one of our most gentle, loving and accepting leaders and sets a prime example for others to follow. However, he will do anything for his females, especially Blama, and will not go anywhere without her!
