Zim To Receive Gorillas, Okapi From DRC After Donating White Rhinos

The Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority (Zimparks) has revealed that it will soon be receiving okapi and gorilla breeds from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). This comes after Zimbabwe recently donated 10 white rhinos to the DRC. Speaking to Southern Eye, Zimparks director-general Fulton Upenyu Mangwanya

Right now, we are having arrangements with DRC because we have some animals we want from them and they are willing to give us, but we are doing our homework first, because you can’t really take a chimpanzee or gorilla from there before you make plans…Just like they did when they wanted to introduce rhinos, they made serious investment plans and we are also going to do the same. They also have an animal called okapi which resembles half-zebra and half-giraffe and we also need it here. These are sensitive animals but want to make scientific research and find if it can actually live well here without any problems of habitat changes
