Program Information

Founded in 1984, ChimpanZoo is an international research program dedicated to the study of chimpanzees in zoos and other captive settings. Approximately 200 chimpanzees are involved in ChimpanZoo, making it the largest ape research program ever undertaken. 

Trained by participating zoos and the Jane Goodall Institute, students, caretakers and volunteers record behavioral observations and work with zoo keepers to improve the lives of captive chimpanzees and compare their behavior to that of chimps in the wild.

 

Goals:

  • To increase public awareness about the plight of chimpanzees and to increase understanding of chimpanzee behavior.
  • To assist zoos in their efforts to improve the habitats and conditions for captive chimpanzees.
  • To facilitate the exchange of information on ways to enrich the lives of captive chimpanzees.
