We also went to Howletts Zoo on the Sunday which is a fantastic place - the largest collection of gorillas privately owned in the world. They rehabilitate them and send them back to safe environments in the wild and the Aspinall Foundation has an 84% success rate which is phenomenal.
But this gorilla looked so so sad. I was right in front of her. I think she was jealous of the other two females in her cage who had newborn babies. She kept looking at the baby and looking sadder and sadder. But I also found it sad to see her so caged......
