And Now, A Baby for Golden!

In his latest blog entry, Dr. Deus Mjungu, Gombe Stream Research Center’s director of chimpanzee research, discusses the newest addition to the G family in Gombe National Park, Tanzania.

It’s been two days since we saw Golden with her new baby for the first time. One month and four days after her identical twin sister had a baby, Golden has also given birth.

The Baby Swap

In his latest blog entry, Dr. Deus Mjungu, Gombe Stream Research Center’s director of chimpanzee research, discusses a recent chimpanzee baby exchange at Gombe National Park, Tanzania.

It has been 12 days now since Glitter became a mom for the first time. However, for the past few days, Gremlin, Glitter’s mother, has been carrying, nursing, and otherwise providing all the necessary physical protection for Glitter’s new baby.

A New Perspective on Chimpanzees!

"For the past 10 days, we have taken a different angle on filming chimps. Rather than shooting a fig-eating sequence in the traditional way—from the ground looking up 100 feet or so to the treetops—we decided to move up to the chimps' level. 

Searching High and Low for Chimpanzees

In his latest blog entry, Dr. Deus Mjungu, Gombe Stream Research Center’s director of chimpanzee research, writes of a particularly strenuous day tracking the chimpanzees of Gombe National Park.

Each day, we typically target one individual chimpanzee who has not been followed recently and track him or her for the entire day.

Nesting

Chimpanzees also need beds to sleep in. Every evening chimps will build a new tree nest to settle in for the night.

On the Trail of Gombe’s Twin Sisters

In a recent blog update, Dr. Deus Mjungu, Gombe Stream Research Center’s director of chimpanzee research, wrote of observing the interaction between Gombe National Park’s twin sisters, Golden and Glitter. Dr. Mjungu also hinted about some potentially exciting news—fingers crossed!

Sibling Rivalry

When baby chimps are born, older siblings often have a hard time losing their mother's attention.
