They Looked Out For Him
He could even recall how he once got stuck in a tree – it was a good thing the gorilla approached him, placed him on her back, and took him to safety. Apparently, she even wiped his tears away and comforted him! Despite the connection the little boy felt with animals, Damian could not have foretold what would happen when he came face to face with the gorillas he grew up with.
The Aspinall Foundation
Howletts Wild Animal Park came to be when John Aspinall created a charity organization called the Aspinall Foundation. The agency promotes the conservation of wildlife and used proceeds to launch two zoos in the United Kingdom: Howletts Wild Animal Park and Port Lympne Wild Animal Park. In both locations, they breed endangered and rare animals like tigers and gorillas.
