Each week, we share new images of chimpanzees. In general, the images are of the chimpanzee groups our researchers observe in Gombe National Park, Tanzania, and of the residents that our team cares for at the Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of the Congo.
From now through the opening of Disneynature's "Chimpanzee", we will share images of the chimpanzees from the film.
Check back each week for new photos.
