The bell tolls

20,000 humans to every chimp is not enough, it seems (Apes extinct 'in a generation').

My observation is that time spent in close proximity to and study of gorillas, chimps or orang-utangs tells you a lot about what it is to be human. Because if we cannot observe what we share and do not share we cannot truly understand what we are like.

Goodbye, cousin.
