If you did not know that bonobos are matriarchal and use sex to maintain harmony, you'll want to read this introduction to bonobos from Live Science and primatologist Brian Hare. He has done several studies at our sanctuary for orphaned chimpanzees, the Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo.
Join us for a live online chat with our own Lisa Pharoah, who is recently back from our Tchimpounga sanctuary in the Republic of Congo. She'll be answering questions about our work in Congo and daily life amid 140 or so orphaned chimps.
If you'd like to send your questions to Lisa now, please send them to: email@example.com.In the subject line of your e-mail, please write "Chat" and also please include your first name and the first letter of your last name in the body of your e-mail.
At the Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo we give traumatized orphan chimpanzees, who are often sick, malnourished and close to death, a second chance at a happy life.
