Celebrating our closest cousin in the animal kingdom.
Give a Pant-hoot
This year, we are celebrating all the fascinating reasons chimpanzees are so special. Did you know that chimpanzees have a unique form of communication using vocalizations? One of them is called a “pant-hoot," a greeting each chimpanzee uses to say “hello!” Chimpanzees can also learn from one another and develop individual cultures. Beyond these truly amazing behaviors, chimpanzees play a vital role in their ecosystems as seed dispersers – they are known as the “architects of the forest.” Raise your voice to #GiveAPANTHOOT for chimpanzees.
