“Why is our Chimpanzee Community so special? It’s the fact that Taronga’s Chimpanzees live as close as it is possible to the way Chimpanzees live in the wild,” a senior keeper writes.
“Taronga’s Chimpanzees live in a large, complex, socially stable, multi-male, multi-female community, made up of different families.
“The family unit is the basis of Chimpanzee society, just as it is with humans. We have six different families in our community.
“Chimpanzee communities are seething hotspots of complex social tension and politics and I often think that our Chimpanzees could make one of the best-ever soap operas.”
