Baraka: A Gombe Field Assistant

Baraka has been working at the Gombe Stream Research Center as a Research Assistant for 15 years. On an average day he collects data on chimpanzees in the field, painstakingly recording every action of each chimpanzee he has been tasked with observing. This B-record data may be used in future studies, books, and/or films aimed at teaching us more about chimpanzees and their social structure.

Happy Holidays from the Chimpanzees of the Jane Goodall Institute's Tchimpounga Sanctuary

This video shows the chimpanzees of the Jane Goodall Institute's Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center, many of whom have been relocated to their new homes on three islands near the main sanctuary site. These islands are now being used as an expansion of the sanctuary to help increase space and forest access for the more than 150 chimpanzees cared for by JGI's team at Tchimpounga.
 
With the help and support of JGI's donors these chimpanzees are now happier in their new pristine forest home.
