A lucky group of bonobo chimpanzees are getting an $10 million, 18-room high-tech dream dormitory
outside of Des Moines, Iowa. The crib has touch screens for the
occupants to “chat” with human researchers, a “web cam” to see who is
outside their front door, flushing lavatories, an indoor waterfall and
climbing walls. The experiment aims to see if this kind of stimulation
will help them develop skills in language, art and music — and pass
those skills on to future generations of chimps. I would like to see
this experiment performed on American public school children.
