New baby gorilla in Bwindi National Park

New baby gorilla in Bwindi National Park for the Bitukura Gorilla Family

The Bitukura Gorilla Family has been delighted with the birth of a new member! Mother Ruhara, one of the adult females, and her baby gorilla are doing well. Curious juveniles are struggling to touch their new family member who is closely guarded by the proud father Silverback Ndahura. The mother gorilla dedicates her time to breast feeding and grooming the infant.


The birth of the baby gorilla brings the group size of the Bitukura family to 14 individuals and contributes to a bright future for the gorilla group, after the loss of some family members last year.
