Portrait of the western lowland gorilla called Fubu, who lives in the semi-freedom conditions in Lesio Louna reserve in The Republic of Congo. Fubu is now 17 years old, He was born in Howletts Wild Animal Park in Kent, integrated into a bachelor group in Port Lympne Park, before being transferred to the Congo. Thanks to a Aspinall Foundation he is now being adapted to living in the wild. Hopefully he will be able to come back to the forest soon.
