The CSNW staff lost a friend today. This afternoon we received a call from our friends at the Chimpanzee and Human Communication Institute (CHCI) in nearby Ellensburg to let us know that Dar passed away this morning. All of our staff worked with the family of chimpanzees at CHCI during our time there as graduate students studying primate behavior. Dar was a big, goofy, gentle giant who loved babies, games of chase, and endless somersaults. He had a sweet freckled face and huge floppy ears that he never quite grew into. We will miss him terribly. Learn more about Dar here.
Thanks, Mom and Dad, for sponsoring today in memory of Dar.
