Outfit two EcoGuards
Send a virtual gift to protect wildlife and help people this holiday season.
The Jane Goodall Institute employs EcoGuards from nearby communities to patrol the Tchimpounga nature reserve, which surrounds the Tchimpounga sanctuary in the Republic of Congo. EcoGuards help prevent poaching and support ongoing biological surveys to determine the best sites for possible reintroduction of captive chimpanzees into the wild.
New raingear and boots will equip the guards to better protect chimps from poachers.
