WILDLIFE -- Life in Kalinzu Forest: Uganda's Chimpanzees

Uganda, a richly forested country with year-round precipitation due to the presence of Lake Victoria, lies just below the equator on a plateau about 1,100 meters above sea level. Wild chimpanzees that are threatened with extinction live in its forests. These chimpanzees have the rare characteristics of being unafraid of humans. They also have their own "culture" which the parents pass down to their young, such as hunting in groups. Our cameras capture the behavioral ecology of these wild chimpanzees, focusing on their culture of teaching their offspring.
