Lions Helping Gorillas

Recently McDougle Elementary had some big news to celebrate. As you know, we have continued our partnership with the Houston Zoo.  In our efforts to be agents of change in saving the wildlife we have started a campaign to collect electronic devices that are no longer in use. This in turn will help protect gorillas in their natural habitat. We want to highlight one of the 9 gorillas at our Houston Zoo.  Here is some information about this extraordinary gorilla: 

  • Binti is a smart and sassy older gorilla.  She is brave and quick to make her opinion known to both keepers, gorillas, and anyone else who may question it.  She is great at figuring out some enrichment items that the other gorillas cannot, mainly because she is willing to devote the time to understanding how they work, whereas the others decide they aren’t worth their effort.
