Our Closest Cousins: 5 Intriguing Things About Chimps
Did you know humans share approximately 99% of our DNA with chimpanzees? Join Expedition Leader Mark Jordahl for an intriguing look at our closet living relatives. Mark is a primate expert, and he previously lived in Uganda, where he leads safari treks to see chimps in Kibale Forest. In this informative webinar about this highly social ape, you’ll learn about 1) the relationship between a chimp’s diet and its brain size, 2) what it means to a chimp to “go on safari” (i.e., indulging in promiscuous mating behavior), 3) chimpanzee gangs—how they patrol their territory and raid their neighbors’, 4) how chimps help keep forests healthy by dispersing seeds, and 5) how the alpha role is determined within a chimp family and how it changes. Chimps are captivating, charming, feisty and occasionally ferocious—get to know them better on this “virtual visit” with Mark.
