Thanks for ROAR-ing for JGI!

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.

We've Moved!

Over the last several weeks, the Jane Goodall Institute-USA headquarters has been in the process of moving to a brand new office.

Here's our new address:

1595 Spring Hill Road, Suite 550

Vienna, VA 22182

We're still in the process of getting ourselves unpacked. If you have questions or need to reach someone, please call our main line at 703.682.9220.

Adorable Anzac

Little Anzac, a recent arrival at Tchimpounga, is one of the many victims of the illegal commercial bushmeat trade.  Congolese authorities confiscated her from a poacher before turning her over to the caregivers at the Jane Goodall Institute’s sanctuary.

In the mornings, Anzac loves to make grass angels, similar to the snow angels many human children make during the winter months.  She lies on her back, flapping her arms about and enjoying the feel of the dew-covered ground.
