This is a story all too common in the world of wildlife conservation. Far too often, since the natural habitat of endangered species around the world is facing destruction, there are not enough resources available to save and protect them. As a result, these animals are forced to rely on the limited support that zoos, sanctuaries, and conservation programs can give them.
In this case, a zookeeper saw that the baby gorilla was in need and stepped in to provide lifesaving care. It is many times thanks to the dedication and commitment of these individuals that any animal in this situation has the chance to survive and thrive. Now, the baby gorilla has a new adoptive mom that will provide them with the love and attention they need to become a healthy and happy member of their new family.
