Congo Gorilla Forest
Western Lowland Gorillas: Camera 1
Gorillas are among our closest relatives in the wild. Their unique personalities emerge through their interactions with each other - playful, cautious, nurturing, curious. It is our hope that in observing and learning about these giants of the forest, people will be inspired to protect them and their habitats.
Congo Gorilla Forest was built as a groundbreaking, participatory exhibit, connecting field work to the work happening at the Bronx Zoo. The exhibit is home to two troops of gorillas and spans 6.5 acres, incorporating nearly 400 species of live plants that range from 50 foot tall trees to delicate orchids.
The Spiny Forest exhibit is home to ring-tailed and collared brown lemurs, as well as radiated tortoises and a variety of bird species including red fodys. The animals co-exist here just as they would in the wild.
Grooming each other atop a maze of branches in our Asian jungle, the silver leaf langurs display their close social bonds. The Bronx Zoo is home to the largest breeding population of silver leaf langurs in North America.
Located right at the heart of the park, our sea lion pool harkens back in time to the zoo’s earliest days. There have been California sea lions at the Bronx Zoo since 1899, and these irrepressible aquatic mammals have always been a favorite around here.
You don’t have to hold your breath to enjoy this underwater view, though it may take your breath away! Stare into the deep as sand tiger sharks, sandbar sharks, and rough tail stingrays emerge from the shadows.
Even if you’re a million miles away from the Bronx Zoo, there are still plenty of ways to have great animal experiences virtually! Book a Virtual Encounter for a personal meeting with an animal, symbolically adopt your favorite animal, or consider becoming a Virtual Member for exclusive experiences.
