This is the priceless moment a baby orphaned gorilla is seen cuddling up to his carer after being saved.
Bobga, the child gorilla from Cameroon is being taken care of by the friendly staff at the Limbe Wildlife Centre’s nursery.
You can see just how close Bobga has actually bonded with his caretakers, as he is seeing cuddling with carer Alvin Muma.
Bobga has a large and safe enclosure where he can hang around when he’s not playing in the nursery with Alvin or others.
Laura Craddock, Fundraising and Communications co-ordinator for the facility says:
” It is important for an orphan gorilla, like Bobga, to really feel safe and protected with his caretaker and right here these pictures catch tender minutes of remainder between Bobga and one of his dedicated caretakers, Alvin.”
” Foraging, playing, learning social skills, stimulating curiosity, climbing and grooming all are crucial elements of his rehabilitation, as is the rest.”
” We give a second possibility to victims of the illegal wildlife trades, educate the local community on environmental protection and provide alternative employment to ex-hunting communities.”
