The video below shows the mother grasping her child by the arms and raising it into the air prior to cuddling it and kissing the newborn gorilla’s forehead:
” Oh my goodness!” one person can be heard saying on the video clip. “Did she just provide it a kiss?” One more woman then informs the gorillas: ” Thanks for showing us!”
Numerous people in the comments of the original article required that the animals be set free, while others appeared to argue against this point.
Right here at Kingdoms, we don’t believe in the captivity of any wild animal, although there are exceptions, such as captivity, to help the population of an endangered animal.
The gorilla in this video clip is a Western Lowland Gorilla, which is a seriously endangered species, and therefore this birth is seen as an specifically pleased time.
Six adult Western Lowland Gorillas live at the Calgary Zoo, and after this birth, we are one action closer to saving the gorillas.
The natural gorilla populace has actually shrunk by 80% during the past 30 years, according to Calgary Zoo.
This is a result of habitat destruction and poaching, mostly because of the highly sought-after mineral coltan, which is needed for the manufacture of cell phones.
