JGI is now offering a special, limited edition chimp guardianship in honor of Tchimpounga’s new arrival, Sam!
Sam is a victim of the illegal pet trade. Authorities found little Sam tied up in someone’s home, suffering from wounds caused by rope digging into his delicate skin. When Sam was brought to Tchimpounga, JGI staff discovered that he was also suffering from an infected bullet wound in his arm. They quickly began to patch him up and treated his various wounds, and now he is on his way to becoming a healthy, happy chimpanzee!
