    Can apeing around resolve workplace conflicts?

    The Zoological Society of London (ZSL) is calling for volunteers to take part in a major new study into human and chimpanzee behaviours. Chimps are our closest living relatives, and as such share a variety of similarities, not only in genetic make-up but also in expression and behaviour.

    Animal behaviour experts at ZSL are asking volunteers to 'talk chimp' in everyday life and see how primate patter can resolve workplace conflicts, express emotions and strengthen human bonds. The results of this major study will be published later in the year to see just how 'talking chimp' can help in everyday life.

    To take part in the study, click here to download our survey, then use the chimp behaviours in your everyday life, complete the survey and return it to be analysed and included in our report to be published later in the year. All completed surveys returned by 31st May 2004 will be entered into a free prize draw to win a family ticket to visit Whipsnade Wild Animal Park.

    This research coincides with the opening of our new chimp facility at Whipsnade Wild Animal Park, we are investigating these similarities to enable us to communicate even better with our chimps and to also see what we can learn when it comes to communicating with our human colleagues.
