It takes an emotional moment to find out how softhearted a wild animal could be. But there’s nothing more touching than an orphaned animal befriending the human who saved it. And this orphan gorilla’s deep connection with his carer would definitely melt your heart.
Bobga was only a few weeks old when he lost his mom. But thankfully, some kind people found him and brought him at the Limbe Wildlife Centre, in Cameroon – a wildlife conservation center. Here, the poor little baby found the comfort and love he never had. He just found in his human carer- Alvin Muma, the support and caring he lost once his mom had gone.
Recently, the deep special bond between the two was caught on camera by the center’s fundraising coordinator Laura Craddock. And the result perfectly shows how deep a bond between a wild animals and a human being can ever be.
“It is important for an orphan gorilla, like Bobga, to feel safe and secure with his caretaker and here these pictures capture tender moments of rest between Bobga and one of his dedicated caretakers, Alvin,” the woamn told Caters. “Foraging, playing, learning social skills, stimulating curiosity, climbing and grooming all are crucial elements of his rehabilitation.”
The adorable snaps speak for itself as it easy to understand how close the baby gorilla and his ‘adoptive’ mom are, by the way they’re hugging and cuddling each other. Even though, it’s in every volunteer at the center nature to display so much kindness and empathy to the wildlife they’re taking care of.
“We provide a second chance to victims of the illegal wildlife trades, educate the local community on environmental protection and provide alternative employment to ex-hunting communities,” Laura revealed.
