The Jane Goodall Institute's (JGI) Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo is home to more than 150 rescued orphan chimpanzees. These chimpanzee are victims of the illegal commercial bush meat and exotic pet trades, often arriving at the sanctuary sick, malnourished, and injured. Under the skillful care of JGI’s dedicated staff, these chimpanzees receive a second chance at life.
Once a chimpanzee arrives at Tchimpounga, JGI makes a commitment to care for that chimpanzee for the rest of his or her life. Since chimpanzees can live to be 60 years old in captivity, a tremendous amount of resources are needed to give the chimpanzees at Tchimpounga lifetime care. Fortunately, every one of JGI's friends and supporters can help us care for these vulnerable chimpanzees by being a Chimpanzee Champion, and making a one time gift to help care for the chimpanzees of Tchimpounga.
As a token of thanks for your generous gift, you will receive:
- A bio and photo of one of Tchimpounga's chimpanzees
- A small plush chimpanzee
