When an orangutan at the Seneca Park Zoo recently had an echocardiogram, there was both a veterinarian and a cardiologist who normally treats humans at his side. The exam of 16 year old Denda was part of the Great Ape Project, a national effort investigating cardiovascular disease in great apes.

He joined up with the Great Ape Project, an international association which targets mistreatment in circuses and zoos. "I've had some serious problems," he says. "People even tried to kill me a few years ago, because there's a lot of money involved in the market in animals." Merivan Miranda, chimpanzee ...

You may be familiar with the Great Ape Project, a campaign to confer actual rights (not just protections) on non-human apes, our species' closest living relatives and some of the smartest animals in the world. This would certainly preclude humans from keeping them in zoos, though a stronger stance would ...
Marcelino is calling to her, but Cecilia cannot be with him. Not yet. He may be handsome, but she has suffered a lot and isn't ready for a relationship. This is not a soap opera. It is just the way things go in a Brazilian refuge for abused and depressed chimpanzees. Cecilia, 20, sits on a rooftop and gazes ...

The Great Ape Project argues that gorillas, orangutans, chimpanzees and bonobos should be given limited legal status, which would protect their right to live, the protection of individual liberty and the prohibition of torture. In 2008, Spain became the first country to extend the rights of great apes under these ...
