Mama, 59 years old and the oldest chimpanzee and the matriarch of the famous chimpanzee colony of the Royal Burgers Zoo in Arnhem, the Netherlands, was gravely ill. Jan van Hooff (emeritus professor behavioural biology at Utrecht University and co-founder of the Burgers colony) who has known Mama since 1972, visited her in the week before she died of old age in april 2016. It took a while before she became aware of Jan's presence. Her reaction was extremely emotional and heart-breaking. Mama played an important social role in the colony. This has been described in "Chimpanzee Politics" by Frans de Waal, who studied the colony since 1974.

Not even in her agony she was allowed to be in contact with nature! She passed away in a metal cell, like a delincuent. We humans not know compassion. We just romanicize the presence of the caretaker.

That sound she makes at 0:50, when she suddenly recognises him caught me off guard, it hurt like a
punch to the throat, it's like when you have a loved one with Alzheimer's and a spark of recognition
means so much, I just wish she could have died FREE and not in a zoo.

Yes, this chimp is lovely but it's unfortunate she lived and died in captivity. Jane Goodall researched chimps by observing them in their own habitat. Diane Fossey studied and protected Gorillas in their own habitat. No need to keep animals captive. Money should be put into protecting them in the wild not housing them in zoos and research labs.

Animals always teach us big lessons. This is one of them, be kind with each other and you will always be remembered with lots of love. RIP, beloved Mama.

So lovely, and such a kind man too, real love between the two of them. But not a fan of zoos, animals like that need to be free. If I were to pick up the professor and keep him in the same environment, how would he feel!

This can happen between humanbeings and all animals. But still most of stupid humans prefer to eat the animals, while they can live healthy by eating plants. This is the preference of "taste" over friendship and love. No wonder the human world is such a garbage place
