Gorilla Naming Competition

This competition is now closed, thank you to all who entered! The name of the baby gorilla and the winner will be announced shortly on our social media pages!

We have a new arrival at the Gorilla Rainforest and he needs a name!

On Saturday 12th of October, first-time mother Vana gave birth to the healthy infant. The infant now joins the rest of the gorilla troop of six, including dad Bangui, at Dublin Zoo. The newborn weighed approximately 2-2.5kg at birth and he is the second offspring of father Bangui since his arrival at Dublin Zoo, joining half-sister, Asali.

Enter the competition to name this critically endangered species and you could win a family day pass to Dublin Zoo as well as the honour of naming the gorilla baby.

As western lowland gorillas originate from Central Africa, please suggest names of African origin, so do your research! The closing date for entries is Tuesday, 7th January 2020.
