Gender: Female
Origin: Lastourville

In June 2013, E’tsina was confiscated by local wildlife authorities of Lastourville and brought to the Centre International de Recherches Médicales de Franceville for two months. She was transferred to the PGFV in September 2013 where she spent an additional month in quarantine. After several months of forest rehabilitation, she was finally integrated into the group in September 2014. She connected instantly with Bélinga and Wanga, the youngest gorillas in the group. She has since adapted quite well to her new life.
