The jane goodall institute ensures the welfare of chimpanzees and other animals through our work at the tchimounga chimpanzees sanctuary and rehabilitation center in the republic of congo by caring for and rehabilitating more than 140 chimpanzees, mandrills, mustachioed monkeys and a range of other species. Tchimpounga serves as an important element of the triangle approach to protecting chimpanzees and other species threatened by poaching and the illegal pet trade by providing a place for law enforcement officers to bring confiscated animals.our conservation work protects the habitats of chimpanzees. Chimpanzees serve as a barometer species: when they are thriving myriad other species flourish. Our signature, community-centered conservation approach, tacare, engages villagers and local stakeholders to identify their needs and priorities and builds durable conservation approaches by solving the issues that cause the threat to critical habitats. In 2017, jgi expanded our tacare approach to six new countries.
Jgi's roots & shoots program provides training for formal and informal educators to inspire young people to become compassionate citizens. Roots & shoots engages young people in 100 countries around the world to learn about their communities and to take action to benefit people, animals and the environment. These projects educate young people about a wide range of subjects through service learning.jgi's research at gombe stream research center in tanzania continues dr.
