Chimpanzee Keeper Chats

meetmechimpwknd

Saturday and Sunday at 2:30pm 

The Maryland Zoo’s chimpanzee troop is made up of 10 wild personalities.  Get a chance to see them at their most active during our daily Chimp Keeper Chat.  Every Saturday and Sunday at 2:30pm join a member of our animal care staff for a training demonstration and discussion of behaviors, adaptations and social cues unique to this species.

Join us just outside the Chimpanzee Forest in the outdoor exhibit space (indoors during inclement weather) for this daily chat, which is a favorite among guests.  And we recommend bringing a camera, too as it’s a great opportunity for images of the chimps interacting with their keepers.  Plus, get a chance to ask all your questions as each chat includes time for a Q&A.

Please note that due to animal care priorities, keeper chats may not occur exactly on time.  Every effort is made to keep to a scheduled time, however, sometimes due to circumstances these experiences may be slightly delayed.
