In 2010, in the jungle of Gabon, West Africa, conservationist Damian Aspinall set out to find Kwibi, a lowland gorilla he raised from birth at Howletts Wild Animal Park in England.  Five prior, when Kwibi was 5-years-old, he was released into the forests of Gabon as part of a program to re-introduce gorillas into their natural habitat.

Now that Kwibi is 10-years-old, Aspinall is not even sure they will find the gorilla, and he was not expecting Kwibi to recognize him.  What happens when Aspinall and Kwibi cross paths will melt your heart.  We won’t give away any more details, you’ll have to watch it for yourself! Read more about Aspinall’s fascinating story.
