For one night only, join explorers David Morgan (Lincoln Park Zoo) and Crickette Sanz as they share groundbreaking discoveries about mankind’s closest living relatives! For the past decade, these primatologists have braved the steamy, dangerous and often-inhospitable forests of the Republic of Congo’s Goualougo Triangle to uncover truths about chimpanzees.
Their determination and innovative scientific approach have uncovered new secrets about some of the world’s last remaining great apes. As featured in National Geographic Magazine (February 2010), Morgan and Sanz’s investigations of ape behavior and the impact of logging in this delicate region are boosting the protection of these endangered animals.
