Join us in learning about our closest evolutionary cousins. The Iowa Primate Learning Center (formerly known as The Great Ape Trust) has opened for public tours during the month of February only.
We will learn about the interesting research they are doing to discover a little bit more about what makes us human. We might also get a chance to meet Kanzi, the famous bonobo. Bonobos are a highly endangered species of ape only found in the Congo and rarely on display to the public.
IMPORTANT: If you intend to come with us please do RSVP, but additionally you MUST also book a reservation on the IPLC website. The way their website is setup you will need to make an individual reservation for each person coming with you. As this is a public tour and space is limited, I expect it to fill up fast. Book your reservation right away to make sure you get a spot.
