Howletts Wild Animal Park (formerly known as Howletts Zoo) was set up as a private zoo in 1957 by John Aspinall near Canterbury, Kent. The animal collection was opened to the public in 1975. To give more room for the animals another estate at Port Lympne near Hythe, Kent was purchased in 1973, and opened to the public as Port Lympne Zoo in 1976. Since 1984 both parks have been owned by the charity The John Aspinall Foundation. Howletts imported its first gorilla from Cameroon in 1959; it was a male named Gugis who lived there till 1977, and , in 1975, the first gorilla baby was born to parents Juju and Kisoro: Kijo.
