    By - Dr. Deus Mjungu - GSRC Director of Chimpanzee Research
      Chimpanzees live in a fission-fusion society whereby members of a community can freely join or leave a group at any time. Food normally dictates whether individuals join or avoid a group.

      Jane I love Fanni. She is awesome and has been a good Mum since the beginning. Following in the F Family tradition. It would be nice to get a longer update with more information. And I always hope Jane Goodall will get someone to make a follow up book to let us know how these chimps are getting along.

      Jane I love reading about the wild chimpanzees. And this account from Bill was very interesting. The photographs depict clearly how the chimps dont waste the unripe berries and eat round them. So they can ripen later. ingenious.
