Damian Aspinall, a dedicated conservationist, has dedicated his life to the reintegration of captive gorillas into their natural habitats.
His recent journey to reconnect with two gorillas, Djalta and Bimms, released into the forests of Gabon, West Africa in 2003, brought along his daughter, Tansy.
It had been several years since Damian last encountered the pair, about three to four years to be precise.
However, for Tansy, this was a reunion after a staggering 12 years, as she had last seen them when she was just a young girl. The heartwarming moment when the gorillas recognized her is nothing short of remarkable.
Their warm, gurgling welcome and the touching connection they shared with her left Damian deeply moved. The love between them is so palpable, as beautifully captured on film.
This incredible video is one you’ll want to share with your loved ones, as it serves as a testament to the profound bonds that can exist between humans and the animals they dedicate their lives to protect.
