U3A - Apes with Altitude

‘Apes with Altitude’ was the title of a fascinating illustrated talk by Phred Newbury, on behalf of the Gorilla Organization ,at the first monthly meeting of the newly formed Shipston on Stour Area U3A.

Phred explained that for many years she had a poster of ‘Nudume’ a silverback mountain gorilla, on her office wall His look shows ‘attitude’ and he lives at ‘altitude’. A trip to Rwanda to see mountain gorillas was advertised in the BBC Wildlife Magazine, the photographer of Phreds poster, Ian Redmond was the tour leader. As a result a visit was arranged for Phred to meet Nudume.
