    Meet Jeje, one of Tchimpounga's newest arrivals!
    By - Fernando Turmo - Communications Coordinator
    JeJe is  one of Tchimpounga’s newest additions, having arrived in June 2012. Like most chimpanzees who come to Tchimpounga, Jeje arrived sick, malnourished and suffering from parasites.

    Meet Anzac!
    By - Fernando Turmo - Communications Coordinator
    Recently, Tchimpounga staff members welcomed a new arrival: a baby girl named Anzac. She was named Anzac because she came to the sanctuary on ANZAC Day (April 25, 2012), and because, like many war veterans, she sadly has lost an arm. When she arrived, Anzac was so small that the vet team had to weigh her using a food...

      Jane I love the chimpanzees at Tchimpounga and I know they have had a difficult year. I recently did some drawings of the Guardian chimps and I adopted La Vielle. She is a hero. I wish all of them a happy future. And if you have some money it is a beautiful way to give. These animals deserve our help.

    Here are a few pictures of recent events at Tchimpounga. First, one of our new arrivals gets washed down. When chimps first come to Tchimpounga, many of them are malnourished and have infections.

    2010 Summer Update
    By - Fernando Turmo - Communications Coordinator
    Fun Fact Sometimes the fruit from the markets in the villages surrounding the sanctuary is not enough to feed Tchimpounga’s chimps. That’s why it is occasionally necessary to travel to the area of Mayombe to buy huge quantities of particular fruits, for example, pineapples. The quality of the soil in this area and...
