Friends of Bonobos is trying to save the 5,000 living bonobos in Africa.
If you know what a bonobo is, or can tell a bonobo apart from a chimpanzee, then you are one of a few very special people.
Not many people know that we have another close relative besides the chimpanzee. Like chimpanzees, bonobos share 98.7% of our DNA. Chimpanzees and bonobos look very similar. But if you look closely, you’ll see that bonobos are a little smaller, with pink lips, black faces, and a very attractive hairstyle with long black hair neatly parted in the middle. The first two toes of bonobos have a little bit of webbing. While chimpanzees have low, loud voices, bonobos are very high pitched. Also, bonobo mothers have breasts that look a lot like humans.
