Chimp Gives Her Rescuer A Touching ‘Thank You’ Before Returning To The Forest

This amazing moment between a chimpanzee and Jane Goodall made me cry. Wounda is a chimpanzee who came back from the dead. When she regained her health she was released back into the forest by Jane Goodall and what happened at 3:00 is so powerful!

The rescue work that Jane and her Institute does is so incredible. Jane is hoping for her 80th birthday in 2014 that she can release many more chimps like Wounda back into the wild. For more information on her sanctuary and the work visit Jane Goodall Institute of Canada website.
