Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Damian Androcles Aspinall (born 24 May 1960), is an English casino owner, aspiring songwriter and conservationist, notable for his raising and release of Kwibi, a zoo-bred Lowland Gorilla in Gabon. He is the son of Jane Gordon Hastings and John Victor Aspinall, zoo owner, gambler and founder of Aspers, and conservationist. Aspinall was educated at Millfield School, Somerset. Damian acquired his wealth independently in the real estate business - his father refusing to assist him financially. After his father's death in 2000, Damian bought back the family casino interests with the help of Australian associate James Packer, son of Kerry Packer. He runs the John Aspinall Foundation started by his father, and his stated goal is to breed gorillas and return them to the wild. He manages Howletts and nearby Port Lympne, where 120 gorillas have been born and 77 presently live. The foundation has released 51 gorillas to secure areas in Africa.show more
