The new in­fant joins sev­en­month-old male Mjukuu at Taronga’s Go­rilla For­est. The pair rep­re­sents the be­gin­ning of a sec­ond gen­er­a­tion of western low­land go­ril­las in the zoo’s suc­cess­ful con­ser­va­tion breed­ing pro­gram for the crit­i­cally en­dan­gered species.

Taronga is also hop­ing to con­tinue its breed­ing suc­cess with Good­fel­low’s tree-kan­ga­roos, fol­low­ing the ar­rival of a new fe­male named Kimbe.

Visi­tors can also do their own tree­top ex­plor­ing thanks to Taronga’s new Wild Ropes ad­ven­ture. Par­tic­i­pants nav­i­gate a se­ries of more than 60 ex­cit­ing chal­lenges across four cour­ses while en­joy­ing a bird’s eye view of Syd­ney Har­bour and the zoo’s Aus­tralian wildlife.
