BACHELOR GORILLA CAMP
Silverback gorilla Kibabu, shown in this recent photo chewing on a stick at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, will be sent to New Zealand to establish one of the first gorilla bachelor groups in the Australasian region. Kibabu and two of his male offspring — Fuzu and Fataki — are scheduled to leave Taronga in 2013 to form a bachelor group at Orana Wildlife Park in New Zealand. The move is said to be critical to the stability of Taronga’s world-renowned
Western Lowland gorilla group and mirrors the lifecycle of male gorillas in the wild.
