JGI Teams Up With NASA To Monitor Chimpanzee Habitat Health

 
In 2012, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) announced a new goal; to protect 85% of chimpanzees and their habitat over the next 30 years. This will be no easy task, as the ever-increasing rate of habitat loss is forcing wild chimpanzee populations closer and closer to extinction.
 
JGI is proud to announce a new project that the Institute is implementing with its partners to help us monitor the health of chimpanzee habitat areas, thus allowing us to plan the most effective conservation strategies possible.

Willy was being kept as a pet in a village called Titi.
