Wounda is one of Jane Goodall Institute’s most famous success stories. Her grateful tight hug of Jane after being released into the wild, has inspired millions as the clip is shared continuously worldwide.
But, what happened to Wounda before her release? Why did she need the help of our Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre?
In a gorgeous new animated film, created by our Spanish colleagues with Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA), Jane tells this very real story from her own life – dedicated to endangered chimps for over 60 years. Wounda, a Story of Hope reminds us that all beings are connected. It invites us to imagine and work together for a more sustainable future. So that, as Jane reminds us: “We should not forget that every day, through our actions, each one of us can make a difference.”
