Great Apes, Groundbreaking Work and Guests

Ever seen a gorilla use a computer? On Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m., gorillas within Regenstein Center for African Apes participate in a cognitive study during which they type sequences on a computer screen. And this enrichment is performed on exhibit, meaning that guests can witness the groundbreaking work while a guest-engagement leader explains what’s happening. We’ve been doing this cognitive study for years, but never before has the public been able to observe. So…observe! Join us any Tuesday or Wednesday and learn alongside the great apes.
