Modern great apes are our closest living relatives and come in multiple shapes and sizes, displaying a huge variety of different behaviors. Scientists often use differences in skeletons of these modern apes to construct hypotheses about the behavior and evolution of our ancestral fossil species.

Come join Louis Gorgone, a Masters graduate from George Washington University, in a discussion about the importance of modern primates in understanding our past, present, and future.
