The 180-Pound Gorilla in the Operating Room

In the New York Times, reporter Lisa W. Foderaro covers the illness, treatment and recovery of Holli, one of the Bronx Zoo's 18 gorillas and the dominant female in her troop. The article offers a behind-the-scenes look at the zoo, a leader in conservation and zoo science. Holli's surgery and recuperation took place in the zoo’s 30,000-square-foot health center, one of the most sophisticated animal medical facilities in the country, with three wards, a nursery, an intensive care unit, molecular and pathology laboratories and an operating room.
