Apes Like Us

not your normal nature show

Apes Like Us is a globe-trotting new, entertaining, humorous, intelligent look at apes — gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos, orangutans and humans — and what makes us more alike than different.

We’re about to peel back all the juicy layers on the hows and whys that make gorillas, bonobos, chimpanzees and orangutans all Apes Like Us.

Host Gerry Ellis gets in over his head in the peat swamp rainforest of Borneo in this sneak preview from Episode One of Apes Like Us.

Apes NEED Your Help

Great Apes are disappearing from the wild at an alarming rate. One of our goals on Apes Like Us is to tell their story and the story of the amazing people around the world who are trying, often against incredible odds, to rescue and save apes. Sanctuaries have become “Lifeboats to a sinking ark” — many overflowing with refugees from illegal wildlife trade and habitat loss. We have created a page listing many of the bona fide efforts across Africa and Borneo/Sumatra. If you would like to help with financial support or volunteering please explore them.
