Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center
The Jane Goodall Institute began as an organization that supported scientists conducting long-range, non-invasive research of wild chimpanzees. Over the decades JGI has grown, and so has our mission.
Over the last several months the staff at Tchimpounga have been helping a new arrival, Willy, named after a very dedicated caregiver, get settled after being rescued. Like many of Tchimpounga’s new arrivals, Willy was confiscated from poachers by the Congolese authorities. He was confiscated in the Niari region, which lies north of Tchimpounga. Willy was being kept as a pet in a village called Titi.
