Loro Parque’s gorillas

Loro Parque has released the following video of its social group of Western Lowland gorillas. The parque set up its enclosure – Gorilla Villa – in 1992 in collaboration with the European endangered species programme in order to create a “genetic reserve” for this imperilled animal. There has been much negativity about this park lately and although the concerns behind it are genuinely held and legitimate, the excellent environmental work that this park does can be overshadowed, if not forgotten. It’s important to remember the species they are helping to preserve, and in some cases, survive what would sometimes be certain extinction.
