Meet Wounda, this chimp will melt your heart

Wounda chimp

Her name is Wounda, but her name says it all.

‘Thanks for everything’: The touching moment a chimp who was nursed back to health hugs Jane Goodall before being released into the outdoors.

In the Congo, “Wounda” – it means ‘close to dying’ – and that is exactly how she was found when she was taken in by the Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo.

And when she was finally released after being nursed back to health, she repaid the kindness by hugging the well-known animal activist as realised she was free again.

In the time since Wounda was found, it has taken years of care and dedication to nurse her back to health, until finally she was strong enough to be released into the outdoors once again.

Suffering from a number of illnesses and losing weight fast, it was a race against time to help save her life.

Each morning, Wounda received a liter of milk. The caregivers at the center saw that she was recovering and making good progress.

Thanks to the expert care provided at Tchimpounga, Wounda overcame illness and regained her strength

Eventually, the day came when it was time for her to live her life free from human interference.

She was put into a crate and driven to her new home – a sanctuary site on Tchindzoulou Island in the nearby Kouilou River, the country’s second biggest river after the enormous Congo.

The waters were calm and dark.  Dr. Rebeca Atencia, head of the Jane Goodall Institute-Congo, kept a careful eye on Wounda inside her box.

It has been 20 years since the Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center opened in the Republic of Congo.

Dr. Jane Goodall founded the sanctuary to provide care and hope to the chimpanzee victims of the illegal commercial bushmeat and pet trades.

Today, many of the chimpanzee residents are adults who need to explore and expand their horizons beyond the boundaries of the existing facility.

Recognizing this need, the Jane Goodall Institute put a great deal of effort into creating a more natural environment for the Tchimpounga chimpanzees.
