Cool Animal Fact
Chimpanzees and humans have DNA that is 98% the same. Chimps are more closely related to humans than they are to orangutans.
How We Help Save Them
The Houston Zoo partners with the Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in the Republic of Congo for the care of orphaned chimpanzees.
How You Can Help Chimps in the Wild
