Only ten months after their transfer onto an island of their own, the six young gorillas orphaned by the bush meat trade are progressing well. They no longer sleep within their wooden orphanage and continue to improve their foraging skills based on the amount of time they spend performing this activity throughout the day, and the number of wild plants they continue adding to their repertoire. This short video was taken in early May of 2010 by the FVGP's team leader who works daily with the gorillas. Since August 2008, the gorillas have had no contact with humans other than their Gabonese caretakers whom they seem to consider as their "surrogate parents". Thank you for checking up on the latest FVGP news and for your continued support.
