On the trail of the great apes - Travelling exhibition

The great apes are our closest cousins. This relationship makes them special animals that evoke our fascination and curiosity. Guided by scientists who present their fieldwork, the public discovers the life of great apes in the tropical forest, but also the grave threats that face these animals today.
