30-01-2013 : BOOK A CANAL BOAT HOLIDAY,VISIT TWYCROSS ZOO AND MEET THEIR NEW BABY GORILLA

Book your Canal Boat Holiday from Rugby Marina and visit Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire to meet their new baby gorilla.

The baby, a rare western lowland gorilla, was born at approximately 9.

15am on 3rd January and the zoo say that mum and baby are both doing very well.

Mum, Ozala, experienced a natural and stress-free birth and is keeping the new arrival very close to her.

The baby's father, a silverback Oumbie, is gentle but protective and is showing a lot of interest in the infant.

Listed as 'Critically Endangered' on the IUCN Redlist of Threatened Species there is estimated to be fewer than 100,000 western lowland gorillas left in the wild, bringing the species dangerously close to extinction.

A Canal Boat Holiday from Rugby is the perfect statrting pint to visit Twycross Zoo as it is only 25 crusiing miles away from Atherstone.
