This Girl Grows up with 2 Gorillas. 12 Years Later, They Reunite in the Wild.

Conservationist Damian Aspinall has been working to reintroduce captive gorillas to the wild. Damian released Djalta and Bimms — two western lowland gorillas he raised from when they were babies — into the forests of West Africa. Over the years, Damian revisited the pair of gorillas, but his daughter Tansy hadn’t seen them in 12 years. So, in 2014, Damian brought Tansy into the wild to try and find Djalta and Bimms. He wasn’t sure if they would remember Tansy, the once little girl who was raised right alongside her gorilla friends.
