Primate Behavior and Ecology BS and MS programs establish a Memorandum of Understanding with Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest

The Primate Behavior and Ecology BS and MS academic programs are thriving despite the relocation of chimpanzees Tatu and Loulis to sanctuary in Montreal. CWU and Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest (Cle Elum, WA) have signed an MOU that allows CWU students to receive credits while being trained at their facility, which is home to seven chimpanzees. PBE students can also conduct research and complete internships at Woodland Park Zoo, the Molecular Anthropology Lab, or Mt. Huangshan in China. Students continue to study chimpanzee sign language and communication at CWU using archival data. Visit http://www.cwu.edu/primate/ for information about these and many more opportunities for CWU PBE students.
