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.
