Baboons and humans are closely related and share many behaviors, emotions, and ways of seeing the world.

It is because of this affinity that baboons have often been “models” for human evolution.

Learning about baboons will let you decide for yourself the ways that baboons and humans are similar - and the ways that we are different.

One fact is indisputable: for the first time in history we, humans, completely control the future of baboons. Thank you for visiting and joining in our project.
