Scientists claim that the DNA of gorillas is very similar to humans – about 98-99% the same. This is more than any other animal in the world, and according to these facts we may be more related than we previously thought.
What you are going to see on this video is an incredible story about a conservationist Damian Aspinall and a gorilla he brought to England when it was just a baby.
Damian named this lowland gorilla Kwibi and Kwibi grew up with him at Howletts Wild Animal Park in England. When he was 5 years old Damian took him back to Africa, to a place where he belongs. Everything was a part of conservation program to re-introduce gorillas back into the wild.
Now, 5 years later he went back to search and find Kwibi. Damian had no idea if he will recognize him and how he will react, but the moment they saw each other on that river bank, it was just magical. It was a heartwarming sight and you could just feel how much love they share for each other!
