I’ve been unable to post on a lot of important primatology Washoe the Chimpanzeenews as of late, I’ll try to catch up this weekend.

But I’m making time to quickly announce that Washoe has died. She was 42 years old and one of the first apes that was taught sign language, about 300 signs. She was known for her sweet, endearing soul. She even made signs for words she didn’t know.

Rest in peace, Washoe.
