During her summer tour of Africa, Jane spent time at the Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center (TCRC) in the Republic of Congo. For more than 20 years, the Institute has worked to ensure the well-being of orphaned and abandoned chimpanzees confiscated by Congolese authorities as part of their efforts to combat the illegal commercial bushmeat and pet trades. JGI cares for these confiscated chimpanzees at TCRC, the largest chimpanzee sanctuary in Africa.
