Program: Animal Babies: First Year on Earth | Type: Clip | Aired: 2019-08-28
In Uganda, a tiny miracle is hidden in the last fragment of a once-giant forest kingdom, called Bwindi, the impenetrable forest: a baby mountain gorilla, Nyakabara. Her name means “marked,” because she was born with a white bracelet of fur, never seen before. Nyakabara is one of perhaps only 50 mountain gorilla babies in the world, and at eight weeks old she weighs only five pounds.
