    The director of Leon Zoo in Guanajuato State has stated his hope that the zoo can obtain breeding groups of Western lowland gorillas, Malayan tapir, and snow leopards.

    Quoted in the article linked below :

    "It's a long process that we have been working towards for more than a year, we have had several inspections made by officials from the United States and they were very happy to see how much work we have done, how we handle all of the installations we have in the Zoo, there are still processes to go through, we are still waiting for some authorizations, but being optimists we do hope that by the end of the year we can have a group of gorillas, orangutans and chimpanzees ”

    En Zoológico de León podría haber gorilas y más especias a fin de 2020

    Perhaps this could finally lead to a breeding group of lowland gorillas in Mexico after so many difficulties encountered with achieving this at Chapultepec and Guadalajara ?
