Gorilla Proof cases!


We always knew Peli Protector Cases were tough equipment cases built to withstand the harshest handling but they have now proved to be …Gorilla proof!
The Peli 1120 case was recently used by the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust in Jersey as an enrichment device for their Silverback Gorilla, Ya Kwanza.
The 1120 Peli case was customised to hold a small, HD camera to allow the Silverback to film himself. It was covered in oats and honey and also contained some raisins which challenged Ya Kwanza to investigate the case, encouraging mental stimulation. The case was subjected to everything a 200kg+ Gorilla can do to it - he shook it, he threw it and he gnawed at it to get the raisins out.
The film, which can be viewed at http://images.peliproducts.co.uk/media/gorilla.html shows the case being thrown around without any damage to the camera inside. The HD camera filmed some remarkable and unusual footage up close and personal.
Andrew Scott-Miller, responsible for Events and Marketing at Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, commented “Our gorilla keeper came up with this idea and it clearly required an indestructible box and Peli's reputation of indestructible equipment was exactly what we needed.”
