Girl Who Grew Up With Gorillas Reunites With Them 12 Years Later

The gorillas reactions left me speechless.

Elite Readers previously reported about a conservationist who raised a zoo-bred gorilla as if it were his own. Kwibi was just five years old when Damian Aspinall and his team released him into the wild in 2005. Five years later, Damian decided to track him down.

One would expect that the gorilla would not recognize Damian after all those years and even the conservationist himself didn’t think it was possible. However, it turned out to be one heartwarming reunion.

The story continues with Damian and his daughter Tansy. The family owned a charity, The Aspinall Foundation, which rehabilitates gorillas who were raised in captivity. Their goal is to release gorillas to where they belong, their native habitat in West Africa.

The Aspinall Foundation has been achieving their goal of reintroducing captive gorillas into the wild for 15 years.

Tansy is one who’s fond of helping around with the activities in the charity. The foundation released two gorillas 12 years back – Bimms and Djalta to reintroduce them to their natural habitat. These gorillas were born in an animal park in Kent, England.

In 2014, the father and daughter headed to Gabon where Bimms and Djalta were releaed to check out how they are doing. It’s yet another heartwarming reunion this time and it’s amazing how the gorillas were able to recognize the voice of the person who once raised them.

What’s more adorable is how Bimms and Djalta reacted when they saw Tansy, who was just a little girl at the time of their first meeting. Now that she’s all grown up, watch how the gorillas react to her presence.

Watch another heartwarming reunion of gorillas and humans in the video below.
