Incredible Tale of a Lowland Gorilla

“Tired Road Warrior” has a strong commitment to supporting activities that are trying to save the Great Apes.  The following story and video is truly incredible:

Conservationist Damian Aspinal raised Kwibi, a lowland gorilla, since the day he was born.  When Kwibi was 5 years old, and ready to be on his own, he was released into the wild.  After another 5 years had passed, Damian decided to visit his old friend in the wild.  What happened during this visit is incredible.

The biggest threats to Great Apes are illegal hunting and loss of habitat.  The latter is getting to be very serious, particularly in central Africa and on Borneo.  For more TRW information on Great Apes click here.
