Another Newborn, This Time in Isabukuru’s Group

MuntuThis morning Muntu from Isabukuru’s group gave birth. With the newborn, Isabukuru’s group has now reached 12 gorillas.

The infant seems to be in good health. Trackers estimated that the delivery took place last night.

Muntu (who is 20 years old) has lost all her four previous infants, for different reasons. One died when she was still in Susa’s group (one of the groups habituated for tourists) and three after she joined Isabukuru’s group — one from infanticide and the last two from unknown causes.

Our fingers are crossed for this little one! We hope to have photos soon.
