At just four months old, little Chris was given as a gift to an expat couple who were told his mother had dropped him whilst fleeing a farm in Central Cameroon. Luckily the couple realized they couldn’t look after a gorilla long-term and delivered him into our care. He was in good health and transitioned very quickly and comfortably onto our team. Since then Chris has learned to walk, crawl, and climb and developed into cheeky and fun-loving young gorilla, who is nearly ready to transition into a social group.


To take action and help support Chris for the next year with food, medicine and care, just complete our online adoption form.
