Adorable Anzac

Thursday, August 2, 2012 - 6:01pm

Little Anzac, a recent arrival at Tchimpounga, is one of the many victims of the illegal commercial bushmeat trade.  Congolese authorities confiscated her from a poacher before turning her over to the caregivers at the Jane Goodall Institute’s sanctuary.

In the mornings, Anzac loves to make grass angels, similar to the snow angels many human children make during the winter months.  She lies on her back, flapping her arms about and enjoying the feel of the dew-covered ground.

Anzac is constantly observing all the sounds and movements at Tchimpounga.  Every day is an adventure for her with many mysteries to solve.  Nevertheless, she still likes to stay close to her adopted “mum.”



For every Chimpanzee Blu-ray DVD Combo Pack or Digital purchase made through August 27, 2012, Disneynature will donate to the Jane Goodall Institute through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund to protect chimpanzees, including those residing at the Tchimpounga sanctuary.

JGI does not endorse handling or interfering with wild chimpanzees.  The chimpanzee interacting with a caregiver in this image is orphaned and lives at the Tchimpounga sanctuary.
