The two-month ROAR campaign wrapped up on October 31, 2012, and was a great success! Thanks to donors like you, the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) secured more than $35,000, funds that will directly benefit the chimpanzees living at JGI’s Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo.
Watch as the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) team from the Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo moves the first group of female chimpanzees to Tchindzoulou, a nearby river island they will now call home. On the island, the chimpanzees will enjoy more freedom than they've ever had, while still receiving the same level of care from JGI's staff.

Several members of the Tchimpounga staff are deeply involved in caring for the infant and younger chimpanzees. The babies, Zola, JeJe and Anzac were with Antonette for a few days but now, Angel has taken over their care. Before working at Tchimpounga, Angel worked in neonatal care in a hospital and has a special gift of finding veins on young and very sick individuals. This skill has saved a number of the chimps at Tchimpounga, because Angel has been able to get a vein to give lifesaving medication and fluids when no one else was able to do it.
