Chimpanzees like Wounda, made famous by our video of her embracing Dr. Goodall, have their moment of fame and are forgotten. We cannot forget these amazing beings, and all still left to do to save them. Chimps like Wounda have encountered and survived unspeakable tragedy and pain. But through JGI’s Tchimpounga sanctuary, they are given a new life with a family of other rescued chimpanzees
How can people treat animals so badly.. I'll never understand
Violet was discovered living in awful, filthy conditions. She was barely able to stand with open sores covering her body. Thankfully, we were able to get her the medical attention and love she so desperately needed. After months of intensive care provided by our friends at the @laspca, she has healed and is now living in a wonderful home.⠀

This was taken a few weeks ago when the young #pangolin that we confiscated from poachers on the Park's western boundary, and were looking after here in #Garamba, was out on a walk looking for termites. Her mother had been killed and she was weak and slightly underweight when the Park rangers brought her in. After spending a month at headquarters gaining strength and weight, she was recently released back into the wild. It was fascinating to get to know her over the month and watch her walk, feed, drink and sleep - Something that is not often witnessed. Pangolins are the most trafficked animal in the world and many of those poached and removed come from the Central African forests.
‘Ghost Fishing’ is what fishing gear does when it has been lost, dumped or abandoned.
Nets, long lines, fish traps or any man made contraptions designed to catch fish or marine organisms are considered capable of ghost fishing when unattended.
Caught fish die and in turn attract scavengers which will get caught in that same net, thus creating a vicious circle. : @shanegrossphoto
