Ohio ape has Nfld. moniker

AP   2004-01-16 03:36:34  

POWELL, OHIO -- Take a gander at the newest addition to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium: a baby chimp named Gander, after the Newfoundland town. Unga, a nine-year-old bonobo ape at the zoo, gave birth to a male Dec. 29, the zoo said yesterday.

Zoo workers named the baby Gander for Gander, Nfld., because that's where Unga and some other travellers from the zoo ended up staying after the Sept. 11 terror attacks grounded their flight in 2001.

Unga was one of two bonobos being taken by two zookeepers to Columbus on Sept. 11, when their flight was diverted to Gander because of the terrorist attacks. The group stayed in Gander for six days.

The zoo has 14 of the small, long-limbed chimpanzees.

Fewer than 150 bonobos are in captivity worldwide. The Columbus Zoo is one of only six zoos in the U.S. that have them.
