When conservationist Damian Aspinall went to visit his old friend Kwibi — who also happens to be a gorilla — he wasn’t sure if Kwibi would remember him. After all, it had been five years since the then-five-year-old ape had been released into the forests of Gabon, West Africa.
Kwibi has his own troop to care for now, and hasn’t seen a human in years. However, as Damian’s group gets closer to Kwibi’s camp, it becomes clear that his old ape-pal has no trouble recognizing Damian’s voice.
See their heart-warming reunion in the video below!
