Djibril, The “Adopted” Chimpanzee At Spain’s BIOPARC Valencia Has Turned 3 Years Old
May 18, 2022
Djibril, the “adopted” chimpanzee at Spain’s BIOPARC Valencia has turned 3 years old.
His story began at BIOPARC Fuengirola where, after being rejected by his mother, the park team had to intervene to save his life.
His valuable genetics motivated an important international operation of the conservation program of this endangered species.
With this objective, Djibril moved to BIOPARC Valencia. After a long process and a lot of care, he managed to integrate into the group of chimpanzees.
At first he was shy and insecure and the technical staff remained alert because each step was a new challenge.
But soon Djibril became one of the family, and now he plays with his "brother" Coco.
It’s a happy ending for Djibril and a reason for hope for the preservation of chimpanzees.
