Episode

Several troops of chimpanzees from Mali and Senegal have left the forest and settled in the savannah. Faced with the heat of their environment, they have learnt to rest in caves during the hot hours, and bathe all together in rivers.

In this environment - an unusual one for their species - the chimpanzees of the Sahel are learning to master the new constraints of their dry and open milieu. They seem to have greater solidarity than their forest counterparts, and even manufacture weapons for hunting. Their behaviour is already changing. Just how far will they adapt to the Savannah? This highly speculative question resonates strongly with the history of our own species.
