Ivindo (a national park in north-eastern Gabon)
In September of 2005, Ivindo was flown to the project from Ivindo, Gabon. She was integrated with Sindila who was happy to have her company. Ivindo quickly learned how to handle Sindila’s exuberant and playful character, and became an expert climber to avoid Sindila’s pursuits. She is also a champion nest builder and loves to forage. We hope she will be a great leader as the most senior female of the gorilla group. She has already displayed great mothering skills with each new orphan integrated to the group since 2011.
