Tchimpounga Mandrills Successfully Released Back Into Wild

The Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga sanctuary is home to over 100 primates — but did you know that not all of those primates are chimpanzees?

Mandrills: Releasing Some of Tchimpounga's Resident's Back in the Wild

Over the last several years, the team at the Jane Goodall Institute’s (JGI) Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center (TCRC) has taken great care to systematically search the wilds of the Republic of Congo (Congo) to locate the ideal habitat to safely release select TCRC primates. 
 
After conducting and assessing surveys in several locations in western Congo, the JGI team decided to do a more focused survey in the northern portion of Conkouati- Douli National Park.
