The nonprofit Tansy Aspinall was launched among the gorillas at Howletts Wild Animal Park in Kent, England. One little girl helped with everyday activities in the family’s charity, The Aspinall Foundation, working to rehabilitate gorillas who had been in captivity.

The nonprofit organization’s goal is to be able to release the gorillas back into their native habitat in West Africa.

In the African jungle, conservationist Damian Aspinall, along with his daughter Tansy Aspinall, searches for Djalta and Bimms, two western lowland gorillas born at Howletts Wild Animal Park in Kent.

In 2003, Djalta and Bimms were released into the forest of Gabon, West Africa as part of a conservation programme to re-introduce gorillas back to the wild.

It’s just amazing to watch both Djalta and Bimms respond to Damian’s voice. And then, the way they react to Tansy, who was just a toddler when they first met? This left me absolutely speechless. Watch for yourself below.
