Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Como -

AF­TER months of nap­pies, milk for­mula, sleep­less nights and care from Perth Zoo keep­ers, Owa the baby Ja­van Gib­bon is back with his fam­ily.

The nine-month-old gib­bon’s re­uni­fi­ca­tion with his fam­ily marks an­other im­por­tant mile­stone in the zoo’s suc­cess­ful breed­ing pro­gram.

“To see Owa back with his fam­ily group and thriv­ing is an amaz­ing sense of achieve­ment,” pri­mate su­per­vi­sor, Holly Thomp­son said.
