Chimpanzees are our closest relatives, with whom we share 99 percent of our DNA. We are more closely related to chimps than chimps are to gorillas. Humans didn't evolve "from" chimps.

#orangutan. There's no moral difference between the animals, birds, fish, and insects we hunt, those we use for entertainment, those we kill for food and use as commodities, and those we love as members of our families. All animals, birds, fish and insects are sentient and have a right to live. Go vegan and stay vegan for them. It's the least we can do. Start here: Adopt, spay and neuter your companion animals!
