Laura Craddock, Fundraising and Communications co-ordinator for the center says:

“It is important for an orphan gorilla, like Bobga, to feel safe and secure with his caretaker and here these pictures capture tender moments of rest between Bobga and one of his dedicated caretakers, Alvin.”

Here’s a video showing Bobgas daily care:

“Foraging, playing, learning social skills, stimulating curiosity, climbing and grooming all are crucial elements of his rehabilitation, as is the rest.”
