What’s your favourite animal? That’s such a tough question right? There are so many incredible species right of fauna right across the planet, the task of choosing just one above all the others seem downright difficult, if not impossible. However if we were really, really forced to pick, you’d probability find chimpanzees—our closest cousins—somewhere towards the top of our love list.
So that’s why, absolute favourite or not, we’re excited to present new to our exclusive video streaming app the documentary Land of the Apes. In the show, Primatologist Aliette Jamart and her team Journey to the Conkouati ape sanctuary in the heart of the Congolese jungle to study the fascinating behaviour of a troop of wild chimpanzees.
But don’t worry, if chimps aren’t your thing then we’ve also added a handful of alternative (and totally amazing) new shows to the service, including these ones below.
