It's Chimp Tuesday! Starting today, every Tuesday we'll be sharing chimp-related facts and photos. Got a burning question about chimps? Send it through and we'll feature it here! For our first Chimp Tuesday, we thought we'd start with the basics. Did you know there are 4 different subspecies of chimpanzees: central, eastern, western, and Nigeria-Cameroon chimps?
Unfortunately, all 4 subspecies are endangered, largely due to habitat loss and illegal hunting.
By giving to our crowd funding campaign you can help protect and learn about endangered eastern chimpanzees in Rwanda. Got to chuffed.org/project/endangeredchimpanzees to donate. Link to crowd funding page also in bio.

Take care to remove metal paper clips, staples and pins (where possible to do so without causing further damage), as these tend to rust and cause discolouration and weakening of the paper. Solid brass clips can instead be used to hold small collections of papers together where necessary; these are inert and will not rust, break or become brittle over time, although it should be remembered that all clips have a potential to cause damage to documents through catching.
