"Every day I take away the joy of being able to play with the gorillas as if they were my friends. I will always remember the first time I saw the animal in 2003 when I started tracking the Humba family. I am rather concerned about them today, since they live in the heart of the conflict zone.⁠"⁠

Malin Malin is one of five caretakers at the Senkwekwe Centre.
