Chimp Grief

Friday, October 29, noon CT (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET)

Do chimpanzees mourn? Join Behavior Supervisor Leilani Beaupre to learn about chimpanzee behavior after the loss of a group mate. Just like humans, a chimp’s response to the loss of a groupmate varies among each individual and depends on a variety of factors. We’ll learn how Behavior and Husbandry staff observe the chimpanzees and conduct surveys to study the effects of a death on a group, and how dynamics change when a high-ranking individual passes.
