Mbailassem's mother was killed by poachers when he was less than a year old, and the trauma this baby had suffered before his rescue was painfully clear. Thanks to the round-the-clock care our expert team provided, he's now thriving. We can never replace Mbailassem's mother, but we're committed to giving him a safe forest home for life.

It costs more than £1,000 a year to care for each of our rescued orphans, and more continue to arrive at our sanctuary. The ongoing coronavirus pandemic means that we are fighting to find funds to care for these endangered apes. Please help to give orphaned gorillas a second chance at life in the forest. Your gift will make a difference.

£3 can feed an infant gorilla for a day.
