Tchimpounga – a safe haven for rescued chimpanzees

For many years we have proudly supported the Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Centre run by the Jane Goodall Institute, Republic of Congo, via our Chimp Guardian programme which offers symbolic adoptions of four rescued chimps. Often orphaned by the international commercial bushmeat and pet trades, these chimpanzees receive expert care and rehabilitation by Tchimpounga’s staff and are integrated into new chimpanzee families.

Tchimpounga is surrounded by 129,000 acres of dense rainforest and savannah in Republic of Congo – founded in 1992 it is one of the largest chimpanzee sanctuaries in Africa having provided care to more than 200 individuals since it opened.
