Synopsis by C. Dwayne Smith

This documentary from National Geographic is a rare glimpse into the nature of this extraordinary animal and the care they receive within an urban environment. Debatable in their purpose, many Gorillas exist in zoos across the world. While progress has been made in the reconfiguration of the so called 'concrete jungles' that once housed these magnificent beasts, education and a necessity to conserve has brought a significant change in what is now a more natural habitat. Highlights include heart-warming reunions between Gorilla and Zookeeper, animal and human, friend, and friend. Meet Willie B, Rapunzel, Suzie, and the loneliest Gorilla on the planet, shopping mall Ivan.
