Meet TheChimpanzees

The Chimpanzees

During the Wild Encounters Tour you’ll get the chance to meet some of our chimpanzees, the closest living relatives to us as humans, with 98 percent of our DNA shared. Once inhabiting 25 countries throughout tropical Africa, chimpanzees are now extinct in five of those countries and endangered in five others for a total global population of 170,000, which makes them an endangered species. You’ll discover just how fascinating our chimps are, as they are able to use tools from nature, use American Sign Language, convey emotions like humans, have keen senses – but with up to seven times the strength.
