Meet Mbebo

Friday, March 30, 2012 - 12:55pm

In the weeks prior to the release of Disneynature's newest True-Life Adventure, Chimpanzee, we wanted to give you a daily glimpse into the lives of some of the youngest residents at JGI's Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo.

If you see Chimpanzee during the movie's opening week (April 20-26, 2012), Disneynature will make a donation to the Jane Goodall Institute through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund to protect chimpanzees, including those residing at the Tchimpounga sanctuary.

Mbebo is growing very quickly. In this picture, he is displaying to the caretakers and other chimps at the Tchimpounga sanctuary. Mbebo wants to show them that he is strong and big.
