Watch This Chimpanzee Embrace Its Rescuer And Show True Emotion

Jane Goodall has done more for chimpanzees than almost any other human being on the planet. Her 55-year study of social and family interactions of wild chimpanzees has given massive knowledge to the scientific community. The help she has given the species is almost immeasurable, and at times it seems like these animals really know how much she cares for them.

Wounda was a chimpanzee that came to the Jane Goodall institute on the verge of death. Serious illness had crippled her and caused her to become dangerously underweight. But with the help of Goodall’s team, Wounda made a tremendous recovery and was finally able to go back to her natural habitat on the Tchindzoulou Island rehabilitation site.

But before Wounda made her way into the forest to explore her new home, she had to show her gratitude to Goodall with a massive embrace. The hug shows just how much Goodall has done for these animals and how much they appreciate her efforts.
