@cindypet,
Do you know something that isn't common knowledge? Is the Chimpanzee at risk?

@cindypet,
This article explains some measures taken to preserve Chimp population :

http://earthhopenetwork.net/US_Ambassador_Makes_Chimpanzee_Protection_Priority.htm

""In the past few decades, European and Asian logging companies have built roads into what were previously untouched and inaccessible forests of Cameroon, opening up the wilderness to poachers," writes volunteer Sangamithra Iyer who worked at the Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center in 2003.

"Large logging crews hire commercial hunters to provide food for them, while logging trucks often serve as conduits to transport illegal bushmeat to other markets. Even after the logging companies leave, the clear-cut lanes remain, providing poachers easy access to now vulnerable habitats of wild apes," Iyer wrote. "If current trends continue, statistics indicate that we may lose our next of kin within the next few decades."

Scientists estimate that, due in large part to the bushmeat trade, the remaining wild apes in Central Africa will be extinct within the next 15 to 50 years."

I think I'm sophisticated
'Cos I'm living my life like a good homosapien
But all around me everybody's multiplying
Till they're walking round like flies man
So I'm no better than the animals sitting in their cages
in the zoo man
'Cos compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees
I am an ape man
I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized
'Cos I'm a strict vegetarian
But with the over-population and inflation and starvation
And the crazy politicians
I don't feel safe in this world no more
I don't want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an ape man
I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man
I'm an ape man I'm a King Kong man I'm ape ape man
I'm an ape man
'Cos compared to the sun that sits in the sky
compared to the clouds as they roll by
Compared to the bugs and the spiders and flies
I am an ape man
In man's evolution he has created the cities and
the motor traffic rumble, but give me half a chance
and I'd be taking off my clothes and living in the jungle
'Cos the only time that I feel at ease
Is swinging up and down in a coconut tree
Oh what a life of luxury to be like an ape man
I'm an ape, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voo-doo man
I'm an ape man
I look out my window, but I can't see the sky
'Cos the air pollution is
fogging up my eyes
I want to get out of this city alive
And make like an ape man
Come and love me, be my ape man girl
And we will be so happy in my ape man world
I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voo-doo man
I'm an ape man
I'll be your Tarzan, you'll be my Jane
I'll keep you warm and you'll keep me sane
and we'll sit in the trees and eat bananas all day
Just like an ape man
I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voo-doo man
I'm an ape man.
I don't feel safe in this world no more
I don't want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore
And make like an ape man.

@cindypet,
Do an internet search - my daughter in the fourth grade did a report on Chimps, she took out books from the library and downloaded and printed pictures off the internet. I suggest you do the same. Also, Jane Goodall has done a great deal of work with chimps - you could get some good information and interesting information from her internet site.
