The Columbus Zoo has a very special place in the history of the care and captive breeding of the gorilla. The sight of the world's first captive gorilla birth in 1956, the zoo's breeding programme is today renowned throughout the world. This book chronicles the history of the programme, which is now on the leading edge of the effort to preserve the endangered western lowland gorilla.
