"There is more meaning and mutual understanding in exchanging a glance with a gorilla than with any other animal I know. Their sight, their hearing, their sense of smell are so similar to ours that they see the world in much the same way as we do." - Sir David Attenborough
People who have had the chance to see gorillas living free in the wild have described the experience with a sense of awe and humility. Zoos have tried to replicate that scenario by presenting our primate cousins in captivity, but behind walls the distance between us only widens.
