Meet the new member of 1000 Shades of Green Family, Jane Goodall Institute’s Anzac!
Anzac the chimpanzee is one of the many victims of the illegal commercial bushmeat trade. Congolese authorities confiscated her from a poacher before turning her over to caregivers at the Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga Sanctuary.
Anzac is now progressing well at Tchimpounga. She is healthy and growing into a very outgoing and adventurous chimpanzee. She is not hindered by her missing limb and comes up with novel solutions to deal with many obstacles in her way. Anzac loves to run and climb.
1000 Shades of Green became a Chimp Guardian for Anzac in May 2016. Our support will ensure that she receives the care that she needs to grow and thrive in an environment where she will be protected for the rest of her life.
You can help 1000 Shades of Green support Anzac by making monthly donations through the Jane Goodall Institute Australia (JGIA) – https://janegoodall.nationbuilder.com/chimp-guardian-monthly.

Did you know that chimpanzees are endangered?
Encroaching human populations and the increasing global demand for resources such as minerals have contributed directly to the decline in chimpanzee numbers and their status as an endangered species. Habitat loss, disease, and the thriving bushmeat and illegal wildlife trafficking trade are posing huge threats to chimpanzees. If we don’t act now, future generations of chimpanzees may not exist in the wild.
