Koko and Ndume finally got to go outside together after the rain subsided, and got busy instantly foraging for food treats (mostly greens and vegetables) suspended from various parts of the outdoor enclosure. They were somewhat competitive about it: shown above is Ndume hurrying to get the treats near Koko”s shelf.
They also spent some time foraging on the ground together.
We are seeking a high-resolution color video surveillance system, so that we can continue to monitor the gorillas” health and mating activities, without physically disturbing their privacy. If you would like to support this important project, please email [email protected].
