Ebeki the Western Lowland Gorilla

Nearly 80% of all western lowland gorillas in the wild live in unprotected areas leaving them' vulnerable to poaching. They are now classified as critically endangered due to habitat loss and hunting for bushmeat. In 2000 it was estimated that the ebola virus wiped out a third of all gorillas in the wild.

    Fun Facts about the Western Lowland Gorilla 

     Did you know they have 22 different types of hoots, barks and screams that all have a different meaning when communicating with other gorillas!  

    Who does Ebeki spend his time with at Howletts?

    Ebeki chooses to spend most of his time with his favourite companion, Juma. When he’s not with Juma, Ebeki enjoys playing with his 2-year-old son, Ikebe. Despite the huge difference in size, Ebeki is always gentle with little Ikebe.

    What does Ebeki the gorilla do each day?

    Ebeki is partial to peanuts and any enrichment containing them, including peanut rings on the roof, cubes and barrels filled with straw. All in all, Ebeki is doing a great job at keeping his family in check, all the while maintaining a nice, relaxing environment.

    Where do western lowland gorillas live in the wild?

    Living deep in the rainforests of West Africa, the western lowland gorilla is the most widespread of all of the subspecies. By living in the rainforests, they have better access to a wide range of foods such as roots, bark, fruit and pulp.

    How we're helping 

    The Aspinall Foundation manages a million acres of Congo and Gabon and reintroduces orphans of the bushmeat trade and gorillas from the parks here in Kent back to the wild.
