Wounda is one of 100 chimpanzees recently transferred to JGI’s Tchimpounga sanctuary islands. Wounda was brought in to Tchimpounga on the verge of death after being taken like, thousands of others, for the illegal pet trade. In fact, “close to death” is exactly what her name means. Today, Wounda is full of life and lives happily as Alpha female on Tchindzoulou with her baby named Hope!
