Gorilla iPad Magazine

The birth of two baby boy gorillas in August of 2012 at the North Carolina Zoo marked an historic event! To celebrate, an iPad magazine was created that features our very special troop of Western Lowland gorillas. The N.C. Zoo Gorilla Magazine began as the Capstone project for Elon University Interactive Media Master's Candidate, Juanita Wrenn.

Wrenn consulted with Zoo staff in developing the content of the magazine. Inside the magazine-style app, people will meet all the members of the troop: Nkosi, the silverback, and his growing family-Olympia and her baby Apollo, Jamani and her baby Bomassa and Acacia. Videos explore what and how much the gorillas eat and the family dynamics of the troop. Read keeper notes documenting the first 10 months for each gorilla baby. Also featured is the Zoo's Cross River Gorilla conservation program in Africa, led by N.C. Zoo Curator of Conservation and Research Dr. Rich Bergl.
