Opened in 1836 by the Bristol, Clifton and West of England Zoological Society, Bristol Zoo is the world's oldest provincial zoo. On an area of 5 hectares, Bristol Zoo keeps a collection of 7150 animals of about 420 species. The first gorilla that arrived to this zoo was Alfred, a young two years male that was brought from Cameroon in September 1930. Little Felia was the first baby gorilla to born at Bristol Zoo, in March 1971 to parents Caroline* and Samson*.

The area for gorillas is called Gorilla Island and is shared at the same time with the De Brazza's monkeys.

Bristol houses a familiar group of eight western lowland gorillas (silverback Jock):
