Born in a zoo on May 20, 2000, Johny was rejected by his mother. At five months old, he was received by the Starostik couple, living with them in their house until he was one year old, as he needed special care, such as a bottle every two hours. With this close interaction, they realized the importance of providing Johny with an appropriate place for his development and guaranteeing him the opportunity to live with other chimpanzees. This awakened in the couple a cause, the protection of the great primates that lived in bad conditions. From there, they founded the Anami Conservationist Institute and it didn’t take long for other rescued chimpanzees to join the group. Johny lived for almost fifteen years in the company of 5 other chimpanzees discovering new experiences, especially with Caíque, with whom he spent hours grooming and sunbathing. At the age of fourteen he was diagnosed with a congenital heart condition and required special care. Unfortunately, he didn’t last long. Johny was the beginning of everything, of a fight that will never die.
