According to pintiks, this cute picture of a young orphaned gorilla cuddling up to his caretaker was taken after the gorilla was saved.
Bobga, the baby Cameroonian gorilla, is being cared for by the kind people working in the Limbe Wildlife Centre nursery. Bobga is shown cuddling up with his carer Alvin Muma, which shows how close he has become to the two of them.
Bobga has a big, safe place to hang out when he doesn’t want to play with Alvin or anyone else in the nursery.
“It is very important for an orphaned gorilla like Bobga to feel safe and comfortable with his caretaker,” says Laura Craddock, who is in charge of funding and communication at the center. “These photos show Bobga and one of his loyal caretakers, Alvin, enjoying quiet times together.” Here is a movie showing how Bobgas is taken care of on a regular basis:
