This is Nyango, a female cross river gorilla, the only one in “captivity” in the world. Born in approximately 1990, she was raised by missionaries for the first 3 or 4 years of her life, and ate meals at a table with a fork and spoon.

There are about 400 cross river gorillas left in the wild.

I was fortunate to meet Nyango in December, at the Limbe Wildlife Centre in Cameroon, where I was working with the rescued primates.

Julie Langford loves Nyango and has also met her. This picture is for her.
