Infant Wolf’s Guenon is the latest addition to WCS’s Congo Gorilla Forest
Bronx, NY – The Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo is proud to announce one of its newest residents, a female Wolf’s guenon, born recently to parents Jordan and Gigi. This new addition to WCS’s Bronx Zoo can be seen year-round in the state-of-the-art Congo Gorilla Forest exhibit.
Wolf's guenons (Cercopithecus wolfi) are tree dwellers found south of Africa's Congo River primarily between the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda. These Old World monkeys are very colorful and extremely social. They tend to vocalize frequently and make a wide range of calls.
WCS’s Bronx Zoo recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of its Congo Gorilla Forest. This unique exhibit was the first zoological exhibit that directly connected a visit to the zoo to conservation programs in the field.
