Mischievous Titan's craving for attention makes him a menace in the community.
By Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE
Gaia has always had a strong maternal instinct, helping her mother Gremlin in raising the twins. Now Gaia is ready to have a child of her own.
At the Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo we give traumatized orphan chimpanzees, who are often sick, malnourished and close to death, a second chance at a happy life.
Learn about JGI's work in Africa and around the world: chimpanzee behavioral research at Gombe National Park in Tanzania, our Tchimpounga sanctuary for chimp orphans, our work with communities to promote sustainable livelihoods, and our global youth program, Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots.
The only known living twin chimpanzees in the wild, Golden and Glitter rely not only on the love and nurturing of their mother Gremlin and older sister Gaia, but on the strong bond they have with each other.
