New Oregon Zoo Resident

(Portland, OR) -- The Oregon Zoo has a new resident. Harper is a seven-year-old female white-cheeked gibbon. She arrived this week to join the zoo's male white-cheeked gibbon, named Duffy. They live in the Red Ape Reserve, which is shared with the orangutan family. Harper was born at Disney's Animal Kingdom in 2015. Her move here was recommended to improve the survival plan for gibbons. They are listed as critically endangered. Their numbers have dropped by at least 80-percent over the past 50 years.
