A newborn chimpanzee named Djibril had to learn how to survive on his own when his mother Kika abandoned him at the zoo in Malaga, Spain, after being rescued from a circus.

While they looked for an adoptive mother to nurture him and provide the care that humans were unable to supply, the carers had to act as the child’s surrogate parents. He took solace in a plush monkey while that was happening.

At the BIOPARK Valencia animal park, Djibril, then 16 months old, discovered a new family.

In this sanctuary, the welfare of the animals is sought by offering a suitable natural habitat to help their comfort and recovery. There the little boy was installed with an adoptive mother named Eva.

Little Djibril’s beginnings were anything from simple when he first came at BIOPARK Valencia in July 2019. He was assigned to Malin, a chimpanzee, but she showed little interest in caring for the infant. Fortunately, Eva, another ape in the troop, accepted the child and provided care.

Eva had no experience as a mother, but her instincts awoke when she met little Djibril and they overcame every situation together. Now, a year after his arrival at the park, the chimpanzee has a family, according to Bored Panda .

In order to maintain an endangered subspecies, Djibril is crucial. According to reports from the World Wildlife Fund, he is a member of the so-called western chimpanzee, a species that is endangered in its native habitat (WWF).

There is a serious risk to chimpanzees. The species has already vanished in four nations.

The other locations where these chimpanzees reside already face significant threats to their extinction.

The efforts and cooperation of BIOPARC Fuengirola and Valencia are crucial for the preservation of this subspecies.
