Wildlife heroes come in many forms. This is a moment we captured while visiting lwiro primate sanctuary earlier in the year.
Here, the Virunga pilot, Anthony Caere comforts little Dungu, a baby chimp who he just flew from a rescue operation far to the north. Little Dungu is safe at last in wildlife vet Lina's capable arms. Yes, indeed these two people represent hope for these wild orphans and are the basis from which they can start to trust humans. Every single day as I think back on what I have seen and been a part of during our filming trips across the continent in the last few years I am grateful for these people. Indeed we owe tremendous gratitude to these folks for they are the future of our wildlife.
