Update: "Taiping Four" gorillas to be returned to Cameroon in November
Everyone here at IFAW is very delighted that the official announcement of the return of the Taiping 4 gorillas was made on Friday.
The announcement was made at a lunchtime event held at the gorilla enclosure of the National Zoological Gardens of South Africa in Pretoria. The event was well attended by government representatives including the SA Department of Environment and SA Department of Foreign Affairs, the High Commissioners for Malaysia and Cameroon, other guests and the media.
Transport for the Taiping 4 is being generously provided by Kenya Airways.
