What you'll do

Virtually travel to rainforests across the globe and visit primates where they live and get a glimpse into their inner lives including those of gorillas, chimpanzees, lemurs, marmosets, macaques and many more. You'll find out what a primate really is and meet the world's smallest and largest primates, not to mention the strangest looking and the smelliest. You'll learn how to identify an Old World Monkey from a New World Monkey and a nocturnal primate from a diurnal one. And how to know when a primate is happy and not happy - it's not as easy as you think! You'll also listen to alarm calls an try to guess what the monkeys are trying to communicate. You'll also hear the heartwarming personal stories of Pavel, a marmoset at a sanctuary and Brigitte, a lemur in Madagascar who teaches us the power of friendship. Finally, you'll learn why that as cute as they are, primates do not make good pets and what you can do to help them. Expect lots of laughs and interaction in this live interactive workshop that's both entertaining and educational. Perfect for all ages. By participating in this experience you're helping primates. €1 from every participant will be donated to a primate organization to support primate welfare/conservation. You can also book a private group for a more customized experience featuring your favourite primates. Great for kids or team building
