In April 2012, the staff at the Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo welcomed a new arrival: a baby girl called Anzac. She was named Anzac because she came to the sanctuary on ANZAC Day (April 25, 2012), a World War I observance for people from Australia and New Zealand, and because, like many war veterans, she had lost an arm.
When she arrived, Anzac was so small that the vet team had to weigh her using a food scale. She weighed a mere six pounds, making her one of the smallest chimps to arrive at the sanctuary.
