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.

Happy #WorldChimpanzeeDay! Today, and every day, join Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace to #GiveaPANTHOOT for chimpanzees!
Over 60 years ago, Jane shared insights about the wonderful world of wild chimpanzees, forever advancing our understanding of our closest living relatives. On this day, the anniversary of Jane’s remarkable research, we gather together with the founding organizations of WCD, NGOs, companies, and individuals to raise our voices for this remarkable, essential, and completely unique species. Join us to improve understanding, protection, and welfare of our great ape cousins today and every day.
