According to kingdomstv, Ape Action Africa is a non-profit organization committed to the protection of endangered gorillas, monkeys, and chimps.
Every day, the caretakers examine all 300 residents; this is normal, and the findings are typically routine. But, as it turns out, these ape occupants sometimes discover fresh ways to surprise these seasoned carers.
A caretaker found Bobo, a Western Lowland gorilla who had been saved in 1996, with a new friend who was not expected.
“Our gorilla carer saw Bobo cuddling a newborn, wild jungle infant during his morning inspections.” “The bush baby exhibited no fear of Bobo, crawling around his body and jumping about in an open grassy area before returning to Bobo.”
This is very rare, especially since Bobo is the strongest male in his group and has fought off other gorillas who tried to take his place.
And it turns out that this colossus has a soft side as well.
“Because bush babies are normally nocturnal, seeing one during the day is quite uncommon.” We’ve never seen a wild ape engage with a rescued primate at Mefou Sanctuary. ”
Check them out together:
“The bush baby exhibited no fear of Bobo, crawling around his body and jumping about in an open grassy area before returning to Bobo.”
Bobo’s group was likewise interested in what was going on.
“Bobo’s groupmates were intrigued by the bush baby and thought he would share it with them, but Bobo kept the bush baby to himself.”
They spent countless days together until Bobo returned his new friend to the woods where the bush baby had vanished.
Ape Action Africa is Africa’s biggest conservation effort of its kind, caring for around 300 primates.
Many of these creatures are orphaned as a result of the illicit pet and bushmeat trades. Click here to read more about their battle and to give to the cause.
