The DDHS ChimpanZoo Club
Began in 2008. It is the only high school worldwide affiliated with ChimpanZoo: Research, Education and Enrichment, a program of the Jane Goodall Institute for  behavioral research of captive chimpanzees. Students are trained to record behavioral observations of the chimpanzees at the Oregon Zoo and transmit that information to a world wide chimpanzee behavioral database.  The students derive research questions and write scientific research papers based on their data. The  ChimpanZoo Club also supports Chimps Inc., a chimpanzee sanctuary in Bend, Oregon making enrichment toys and treats for their chimpanzees. The DDHS ChimpanZoo Club is also affiliated with
Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots.

Since 2008 50 students at DDHS have become reliable ChimpanZoo Observers
