When conservationist, Damien Aspinall planned to reunite his now 23-year-old daughter with a gorilla she had met 10 years ago, he had his concerns. But when they finally met again, he couldn’t believe the bond the two still had.
They had even met before this when Damien’s daughter, Tansy was just a toddler. The footage is truly incredible and one Gorilla even picks her up and begins to carry her.
You can watch the first clip below, then watch them reuniting 10 years later.
At first, Damien was apprehensive about how the Gorillas would react, even though they had met before, but he decided that it was safe and summoned Tansey over. The response was incredible, as they instantly recognised her and they began to cuddle in some of the most remarkable footage you’ll ever see.
When it was time to leave, they really did not want Tansey to go and began to hold on to her desperately and it’s extremely moving to watch. But they had no choice but to leave as night was fast approaching.
