Located in Quebec, Granby Zoo is one of Quebec's major tourist attractions. It was founded in 1953 by the mayor of Granby at the time, Pierre-Horace Boivin. There are currently more than 1000 different animals grouped into 200 species, including animals from Africa, Asia and South America. It is member of many different zoo associations such as WAZA, AZA or CAZA. The first gorilla kept at Granby Zoo was a young one year old male called Mumba, who arrived to this zoo in July 1961 directly from Congo and died at the old age of 48 in October 2008. They never got to breed gorillas and they keep currently a bachelor group of four males, altought one of them, Subira, lives separated from the other three.

The facility for gorillas has an indoor room and an outdoor prairie, both them provided with ropes, trunks and platforms to allow gorillas climbing. The outdoor enclosure has grass, plants and trees and barriers to separate gorillas from visitors include glass pannels and a surrounding river in some other parts.
