Despite being one of our closest living relatives, bonobos are still one of the least well understood of the great apes and remain largely in the shadow of their better-known cousins, the chimpanzees. They show a range of unique and fascinating behaviours, from female dominance to peacemaking after conflicts, and studying the differences between the bonobos and chimpanzees can also shed important light on the evolution of humans. Meet a researcher who has been spending time living with these apes, exploring their social lives and finding out what they can tell us about our own origins.
