What to expect

Coming over for lunch? Observe how chimpanzee family dynamics work up close, as the troop has their midday feed. You’ll find out what happens when a baby chimp transitions to being an adult, what’s threatening their numbers in the wild, and how your old mobile phone can help in preserving their habitat.
