The Race to Save Bonobos

A Harvard Museum of Natural History author talk and book signing with Deni Béchard

Bonobos, alongside chimpanzees, are our closest nonhuman relatives, but the species and its habitat are in danger. In his new book, Empty Hands, Open Arms: The Race to Save Bonobos in the Congo and Make Conservation Go Viral, Deni Béchard gives an inspirational profile of the Bonobo Conservation Initiative, an organization dedicated to saving this endangered species and the Congolese rainforest it inhabits. Harvard anthropologist and HUCE faculty associate Richard Wrangham will introduce the speaker.

Free with Museum admission.
