The gorilla was actually considered a true symbol of strength and hope in the park of Virunga, Congo. A good example of how much these marvelous animals have to bear, only because of poaching. Initially, she was brought to the Senkwekwe Center when she was still two-month old. Later on, after she lost her mother, some kind-hearted rangers were willing to rescue the poor animal one of those was her owner.

Mercifully, now there are more than six hundred true-hearted and caring rangers who try their best and do absolutely everything to protect those magnificent extinctive species. This incredibly heartwarming and tight friendship between the owner and the gorilla proved how much warmth there can be between the two creatures.
