Jane Goodall's Chimps of Tchimpounga
6 x 60'
This extraordinary series looks behind the scenes at the Jane Goodall Institute's Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Centre in the Republic of the Congo, one of the largest great ape sanctuaries in Africa. Showing never before seen footage from over more than 20 years, it tells heartwarming stories of rescued chimpanzees who've lived through the tragedy of the illegal pet and bushmeat trade. It follows harrowing efforts to rescue and rehabilitate our closest living relatives, with expert primatologists, including the sanctuary's head Dr. Rebeca Atencia, who's dedicated her life to protecting these incredible beings.
With unprecedented access into the daily life of the chimpanzees, the series will also showcase intimate stories from Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace.
