Great Apes: Protecting Our Animal Cousins

Christopher Gudgeon

Let's meet the great ape family!

Get to know our charismatic chimpanzee cousins, the peaceful bonobos, three types of high-flying orangutans and those gentle giants of the jungle, the gorillas. Discover where and how they live, their biology, what they eat and what they share in common with humans--beyond their opposable thumbs. These giant mammals are our closest relatives in the animal world, known for their intelligence, complex social structures and communication skills. But great apes everywhere are in trouble. Their habitat is being destroyed by deforestation and the effects of climate change. Their population is dropping, and fast. In Great Apes, find out what conservationists, scientists and young people all over the world are doing to protect them.
