photos by michal cizek (1,3,5,7,9) of kijivu, a western lowland gorilla, with her two day old baby at the zoo in prague; and fredrik von erichsen (2,4,6,8) of rebecca and her three day old daugher at the frankfurt zoo.

gorilla populations are now so low that birthing programs such of these are needed to ensure sufficient genetic diversity of the species, as there are less than 800 mountain gorillas left and only 2500 eastern lowland gorillas left.
