Enjoy this Mother’s Day video from the Jane Goodall Institute showing a surrogate mother to some chimplings. If it moves you, donate something to the JGI to show your appreciation for what they do. Remember, Jane herself has spoken out about the possibility of bigfoots being real!
This Mother’s Day, join JGI in honoring Tchimpounga’s resident “surrogate chimp mom,” La Vieille!
As one of Tchimpounga’s oldest residents, La Vieille has a very special role to play at the sanctuary. She spends her time helping Tchimpounga’s new arrivals learn how to socialize with other chimps and gain independence from their human caregivers. Though the young chimps sometimes like to pester her, La Vieille remains a dedicated, protective guardian.
