Meet Anzac!

Baby Anzac
Baby Anzac

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 scale.  She weighed a mere 2.7 kilograms, making her one of the smallest chimps to arrive at the sanctuary. The staff at Tchimpounga is dedicated to making sure that Anzac is getting the care and attention she needs to grow into a healthy young chimpanzee.
