photos by michal cizek (1,3,5,7,9) of kijivu, a western lowland gorilla, with her two day old baby at the zoo in prague; and fredrikvon erichsen (2,4,6,8) of rebecca and her three day old daugher at the frankfurt zoo.
with less than 800 mountain gorillas and only 2500 eastern lowland gorillas left in the world, gorilla populations are now so low that birthing programs such of these are needed to ensure sufficient genetic diversity of the species.
Got to attend The Storymoja Fetsival to speak about blogging. Was on a panel with Jess, Brenda and Ian (their blogs are amazing, you should check them out). Also got to listen to Wole Soyinka’s deliver a lecture in memory of Wangari Maathai.
