The Adventures of Anzac
Written By: Fernando Turmo/JGI Congo

In the Republic of Congo, the rainy season has begun, which means fruits like mangoes are plentiful. The Jane Goodall Institute team buys large quantities of this sweet vitamin-rich fruit in neighboring villages, which is a win-win for the chimps and the local surrounding communities. Mango also happens to be Anzac’s favorite fruit! When JGI caretakers enter the facility to feed the chimps, Anzac grabs all the mangoes she can carry with her hands, feet, and even between her armpits! Like the stealthy and mango loving chimp she is, Anzac will then climb onto a wooden platform to hide and protect her delicious loot from the others.
