After his mother rejected him soon after his birth, this little chimpanzee’s life was anything from simple. But even when forced to fend for himself, the defenseless animal never gave up. He overcame the obstacles, touched everyone’s hearts with his remarkable tale, and found solace in a stuffed monkey!
Djibril, a cute little chimpanzee, was born in a zoo in Malaga, a city in southern Spain. Unfortunately, shortly after he was born, his mother refused to take care of him and eventually left. Sad, yet understandable given that she was saved from a circus where she had endured much. Kika has spent practically her entire life in captivity and lacks maternal instincts, making it impossible for her to care for her own child.
After being transferred to the BIOPARK, an animal park in Valencia, the infant chimpanzee was delighted to find that life had smiled back at him when he least expected it!
Djibril provided a genuinely heartwarming moment soon after he arrived here when he was seen cuddling with a stuffed monkey. He was handed the plush animal by the park workers to help him feel at ease.
The staff then introduced Djibril to Malin, one of the girls, but she acted as though she had no interest in him. But when he met Eva, who quickly gave Djibril her love and affection and adopted him as her own child, everything changed.
With his new family, Djibril is now thriving and appears happier than ever. Furthermore, according to the center, he can be a vital part of saving the Western Chimpanzee subspecies.
