This is the face of our closest living relative. With extreme poverty, lack of environmental education, and illegal wildlife trade, chimps like this little one are left orphaned, if not injured or nearly dead, when their mothers are killed for bushmeat or to be taken as pets. We find these traumatized infants and take them to our Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Sanctuary - the largest chimp sanctuary in Africa. It is here where they are given a second chance - to be who they truly are and live outside of fear. To support these beauties and find out more about their lives, consider becoming a Chimp Guardian! Link in bio. If a problem exists, we must each take action, in whatever small or large way, and approach the task from every angle. At JGI, Jane's holistic vision has always been about protecting wild chimps, their habitats, and working in partnership with people to create harmony between all living things. Tchimpounga is a part of that rounded community centered conservation, and you can be a part too! | #chimpanzees #chimps #savechimps #savechimpanzees #tchimpounga #animalrescue #animalsarefriends #chimpslikeus #98percentchimp #congo #congobasin #conservation #sanctuary

Keeper Daouda Keita reached down to help Missy up onto his back. She is an orphan, one of 50 west African chimpanzees at the Chimpanzee Conservation Centre. Here Missy and two other infants are about to go on their daily outing into the bush to learn essential survival skills.

Guinea’s Chimpanzee Conservation Centre rehabilitates traumatised infant chimpanzees rescued from the illegal pet trade with the hope of releasing them into the wild. It’s a minimum 10-year process of care and compassion. Aged one on arrival, Missy has adapted well to her new environment with the help of the keepers who act as substitute mothers.

Meet Rambo from the latest rescue of the 4 chimps from the illegal zoo in Guinea, with the help of PASA member wildlife center Chimpanzee Conservation Center!

My name is Rambo, and I think I'm about 15 years old, just in that awkward stage between adolescence and adulthood for chimpanzees. I was living in a barren cage with three other chimpanzees until a brave group of people came to my rescue. I'm still very stressed and confused as to how I got to my new home, but I think I'm going to love it once I settle in. I wasn't taken care of properly where I used to live, and need extra food and care to become healthy and strong again.

Won't you please help me? Every little bit counts towards my survival. Donate HERE:

Thank you!

Time for a snack.

Wonder what the monkees are thinking about us humans?

We love forests! JGI has been working with GIS through our #Conservation Science program along with @google to map essential habitat to protect forests, regrow ecosystems, and work with communities to create land use plans, forest reserves and wildlife corridors to save chimps and so much more!
