Zoo La Boissière du Doré was founded in 1984 under the direction of Monique Laurent and located in Loire-Atlantique. It is a natural area which is 20 hectares (3 hectares when it was inaugurated) where there are living 600 animals of 70 different species including primates, carnivores, herbivores, birds and reptiles. Their first gorillas arrived to the zoo in April 2002 from Leipzig and Stuttgart; it was of three gorillas: female Iringa and males Vimoto and Kumbuka. Soon after that, Iringa left the park to Budapest and Zoo La Boissière du Doré got more males to do a bachelors group.
