Can anyone contribute any information on the history of the chimpanzee at Wellington Zoo (Pre 1990s). The founding females were Tea-party chimps, imported from London Zoo (Via Auckland Zoo) in 1956. Their names were: -Breena -Yoka -Molly Does anyone know the estimated date of birth of these animals, their date of death, or most importantly their offspring? Any information would be appreciated... I've also heard information that breeding started when (four?) males were imported from Taronga Zoo. Does anyone know anything about this? Four males seems a lot to import, though chimpanzees were kept in pairs back in the 50s, 60s etc. as were gorilla so perhaps the zoo seriously believed the needed a male for every female to achieve breeding??? We now know different.
