Orphaned Baby Gorilla Cuddles Up With Caretaker After Being Saved From Bushmeat Trade

The human-animal bond is not just between people and popular pets, such as dogs and cats. Wild animals who are dangerous and undomesticated can also develop relationships with human beings. This has been proved many times, but if you still need more proof, we are here to help you. In this post, we would like to show you the adorable moment of an orphaned baby gorilla cuddles up with caretakers after being rescued. Their sweet relationship shows us that love knows no boundaries.

Orphaned baby gorilla cuddles up with caretaker

The gorilla, called Bobga, was taken into the Limbe Wildlife Centre, a wildlife sanctuary in Cameroon, Africa when he was just a few weeks old. He lost his family due to poaching and was sold as a pet on the black market. His chances of survival were very slim, but thankfully, he was rescued just in time and was cared for by staff at the centre’s nursery.

Due to bad things in the past, Bob didn’t trust humans. However, everything changed when he met Alvin Muma, a volunteer at the Limbe center. He soon found love in Alvin and realized that humans could be good, too. Alvin knew nothing would ever replace the love of a family, but he tried everything in his power to make Bobga feel comfortable and happy.

Their sweet bond was captured in a series of heartwarming photos. Laura Craddock, the centre’s Fundraising and Communications co-ordinator, took the pics and shared them online. In the photos, Bobga can be seen cuddling up to Alvin or sleeping into his arms. The moment is nothing short of heartwarming!

“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,” Craddock said. “Foraging, playing, learning social skills, stimulating curiosity, climbing and grooming all are crucial elements of his rehabilitation.”

She added, “We provide a second chance to these helpless animals, educate the local community on environmental protection and provide alternative employment to ex-hunting communities. Her’s a tender moment of rest between Bobga and one of his dedicated caretakers.”
