The Batéké Plateau National Park, established in 2002, is a national park located in the southeastern Gabon covering 2,034 km2. This was the place chosen by the Aspinall Foundation to run their conservation project, which is about releasing a whole family of captive gorillas back into the wild. The gorillas chosen were Djala's family from Port Lympne Wild Animal Park (Kent, England), formed by ten members including him. The family was started their journey on June 23rd 2013, when they were flawn from the United Kingdom to Brussels (Belgium), to Lagos (Nigeria) and then to Franceville (Gabon). They were then transported to their new home in the national park by a helicopter, where they are still residing at, with plans of the posibility to release them someday.
