RAISING KINDI Our New Infant Gorilla NAMING KINDI We usually seek your help in naming our newborn animals. This time, in recognition of their devotion and tireless caretaking, gorilla keepers were given the opportunity to name Mia’s offspring. Mia earned the nickname “squirrel” because of her playfulness, quickness and agility. Keepers chose to honor her by naming her infant ”Kindi” which means squirrel in Swahili. Kindi also rhymes with Mshindi, the name of her father. 4 • Louisville Zoo Trunkline • Summer 2016
