Humans aren’t the only ones who mourn.
When this female named Dorothy died of heart failure, all the chimpanzee family came out of the forest to say good bye….. the most stunning reaction was a recurring, almost tangible silence, reported staff at Cameroon’s Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Centre. If you know chimpanzees, then you know that they are not usually silent beings. I think it’s beautiful how many of the chimps are touching each others’ shoulders. ♥
