Post-Conference Trip to Leon Zoo

Founded in 1979, the Zoological Park of Leon will be our destination for an amazing closure for the 2016 International Gorilla Workshop. After 5 days of great moments and gorilla conferences, on November 5th, we will make a 2 hour travel in a comfortable bus, to Zooleon, one of the most important zoos in Mexico.

This AZA accredited institution is home  to more than 1200 animals of around 180 species, with several primate species among them.

This place has its own history with gorillas, since it was home for almost nine years for Benno (1958-2004), a gorilla that came from Germany to retire in the warm Mexico.Benno 0001 Benno 0002 Benno 201 Benno

Benno’s former exhibit is now occupied by other animals, but awaits for the return of gorillas to its bamboo forest.
