Happy World Chimpanzee Day

Ooh ooh ah ah readers, hello!

This past Saturday, July 14th, was the first annual World Chimpanzee Day, did you know that?

This brand spankin-new holiday was founded by the Jane Goodall Institute to commemorate the day Dr. Gooddall began her chimpanzee field studies at Gombe Stream National Park back in 1960.

Here is a map to situate ourselves:

So the question is, how does one celebrate World Chimpanzee Day?

By monkey-ing around of course, and thinking sweet thoughts for our hairy cousins in the jungle.

Happy World Chimpanzee Day, a few days late.

 

Many more to come,
