In Memoriam: Gregoire, 1942-2008

One of the animal world's most incredible stories of resilience and happy endings came to a quiet close in December 2008: Gregoire, Africa's oldest-known chimpanzee and a national hero in the Republic of Congo, died in his sleep. Caretakers found Gregoire dead in his bed of eucalyptus leaves at the Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center, JGI's sanctuary for orphaned chimpanzees. News of Gregoire's death brought messages of condolence and sympathy to Jane and JGI from around the world.
