From Kent to the Congo: a teenage gorilla's journey
A teenage gorilla has been flown out to Africa from Kent to try to save his species from extinction.
Joshi, the 13-year-old 30-stone western lowland silverback gorilla, was born and raised at Howletts Wild Animal Park in Kent.
She's travelled four thousand miles to make his new home in the Lesio-Louna Nature Reserve in the Republic of Congo and will soon be living wild and free in the forests.
It's in a bid to save his species which is under threat of becoming extinct.
