Gombe National Park The ancient forest may look tranquil and Serena. Still, suddenly an exciting whoop emerges from the heart of the jungle, with a dozen other voices immediately join in, rising in volume and tempo to a frenzied shrieking crescendo. Next to that, almost 98% of Chimpanzees share their genes with humans.
No scientific expertise is required to distinguish between the individual repertoires of pants, hoots, and screams that define the celebrities, the power brokers, and the supporting characters. Perhaps you will see a flicker of understanding when you look into a chimp’s eyes, assessing you in return – a look of apparent recognition across the narrowest of species barriers.
