Cleveland Metroparks Zoo recently celebrated baby gorilla Kayembe’s first birthday. On Oct. 26, the gorilla troop received special birthday “treats” and guests had the opportunity to sign a birthday card for Kayembe.
Kayembe is the first gorilla born at the zoo in its 140-year history.
Additionally, the zoo launched its first children’s book, “Baby K’s Big Day,” which celebrates Kayembe’s extraordinary birth in the hopes of building connections with and conservation of this critically endangered species. The book is available for purchase at the zoo gift shop.
