Building Global Connections through visually rich learning resources



Apes Like Us

A new YouTube channel, Apes Like Us, is a pilot project created from the research and filming on Great Apes 2020. Apes Like Us is GLOBIO’s first online effort to reach a new broader, web-connected, global audience with wildlife and environmental education content. Apes are one of the most charismatic creatures on our planet — they are after all US. By focusing on apes as a vehicle for exploring and understanding our world and what we are doing to it GLOBIO hopes to take many more people on a learning journey than might otherwise be engaged.

Apes Like Us is built on the voluminous visual and audio media created over the past five years. GLOBIO chose YouTube as the best media platform because of its broad use — over 35 billion views per day —

platform to reach people who already are excited about our planet through apes, but millions that could be engaged. The YouTube platform is also the most available to kids, educators, and adults on any device they have.

Great Apes 2020

The partnership is a return to GLOBIO’s origins where flagship species form the basis for engaging children in exploring and discussing the world, and the factors threatening species health and survival. GLOBIO, working with the rich content being created by Great Apes 2020, will look to develop a range of web-based resources that enable educators to access existing learning materials that use great apes as an opportunity to help children understand complex global environmental issues. Some of these resources will utilize the growing body of photos, video and audio being created by the Great Apes 2020 team over the next three years.
