about the video

In 2015, 11-year-old gorilla, Shira captured the world’s attention because she couldn’t bear to part with her dead baby a week after it died. She had also lost another baby previously. But after a year Frankfurt Zoo introduced the world to its new pride and joy. In a heartwarming development, Shira has given birth to another baby. The zoo authorities say that the newborn looks big and strong and they are optimistic about his survival. Breeding and raising apes in captivity is challenging but it’s necessary to keep the endangered population sustained.
