A View from a Different Zoo: Brookfield Baby Gorilla

Koola, an 18 year old western lowland gorilla who resides at the Brookfield Zoo, has given birth to a baby girl.  The baby’s father, Jojo, was sent from Lincoln Park Zoo to Brookfield last year based on a suggestion from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Gorilla Species’ Survival Plan.  You may also remember the new baby’s grandma, Binti Jua, who was named Newsweek’s Hero of the Year for saving a human child in 1996.

You can see these gorillas at Brookfield’s Tropic Zoo: Africa exhibit.
