Inheriting The Organization
The organization runs a project for orphaned gorillas that involves the reintroduction of these animals back into the wild, particularly at the Plateau Bateke National Park in Gabon. After his father’s death, Damian succeeded him as the chairman. He finally had the power to enact the wonderful plans that he had been dreaming up since he was a boy.
Better Than Humans
When it comes to his childhood, Damian does not recall ever having friends over. Not only was their house full of possibly dangerous animals, but he also felt a deeper connection with the animals than he did with other humans. “You don’t get playdates when you’ve got tigers in the garden. The odd mate came, otherwise it was just me and the animals. To be perfectly honest, I’ve always felt disconnected, and humans inevitably let you down – animals never do. There’s more of an honesty and purity there,” he explained to Daily Mail.
