Bronx – 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.
