Kefan is as strong and noble a leader as they come. At Tchimpounga, on the sanctuary island of Tchindzoulou, he lives as Alpha male - but that doesn’t mean he can’t make time for play and grooming with friends Bleck and Ouband! Kefan, despite having suffered at the hands of the illegal trade, now leads the group with strength and kindness, with plenty of time to explore the lush forests of the islands in safety and happiness!

The Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of the Congo has been operating for over 25 years as a safe haven for rescued chimpanzees. Tchimpounga puts the needs of rescued chimpanzees first, providing a second chance through first in class care for nearly 150 chimpanzees. The work of Tchimpounga is possible through the support of our Chimpanzee Guardians.
