Back to Save the Gorillas

Newly rescued gorilla now in safe hands

After a long and difficult journey, another illegally captured Grauer's gorilla has arrived safely at the temporary care facility in Goma, Congo, after confiscation by Congo wildlife authorities (ICCN). Now named "Lubutu," this youngster is a male about 2 years old, thin and malnourished. He is now undergoing medical checks and bonding with our special caregivers. If all goes well, his new home will be the GRACE rescue center, where he will eventually join other orphaned gorillas and prepare for a life back in the wild.
