My Hero: Jane Goodall

This video is so touching. Jane Goodall is, and always will be, a hero of mine. In this video, a chimp named Wounda is released back into the wild after a stint at the Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center. I’ll warn you now, it’s a tear jerker so have those tissues ready. Just after being released, Wounda turns around to give Jane a big hug. I don’t know if I’m more jealous that Dr. Goodall got to hug a chimp or that the chimp got to hug frickin’ Jane Goodall!

The Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center cares for around 160 chimpanzees at any given time. To support the center or learn more, check out the Jane Goodall Institute’s website.
