A year old story about an unbreakable friendship between man and gorilla, produced by aqua Vita Films, has gone viral again. It is a story about conservationist Damian Aspinall, who wanted to meet again Kwibi, a lowland gorilla he hasn’t seen for 5 years.

Kwibi grew up with Damian at his Howletts Wild Animal Park in England, but when he was five, he was released into the forests of Gabon, West Africa as part of conservation programme to re-introduce gorillas back into the wild.

These are the touching moments of their reunion:
