ACKnOWLEDGEmEntSCreating such a comprehensive Educators Guide takes the energy, innovation, talent and hard work of many specialists. At the Walt Disney Company, Disneynatures Paul Baribault and Catherine Stephens presented the Disneys Animal Kingdom Education Team with the opportunity to take on this exciting project. Dr. Liz Fogel brought all the right partners together in a joyful way to create a multi-disciplinary Educators Guide that benefits classroom teachers and zoo educators. At Disneys Animal Kingdom, Laurie Cummins developed the brilliant lessons and activity sheets with the amazing assistance of Nadine Kocanjer. Kris Whipple told the complete story of chimpanzees using interpretive language and examples through the Teachers Background Information. Dr. Tammie

Bettinger applied her years of experience working with chimpanzees both in zoos and in the field to ensure the accuracy of all information. Allyson Atkins, Dr. Jill Mellen and Kim Sams (Conservation Initiatives) reviewed and commented on the final draft to ensure a quality product. The holistic approach to this Educators Guide could not have happened without the special talents of the following subject matter experts: Drs. Carol Henry, John Hoge, Linda Labbo, John Olive, Michael Orey and Deborah Tippins from the University of Georgia, and Dr. Wayne Nelson from Southern Illinois University. A review team consisting of Betty Carvellas (Educator Lead for the National Academy of Sciences Teacher Advisory Board), Charlene Dindo, Steven Dracht and Michael Koehler brought their expertise and understanding of science and math to the Guide.

The specific photo images needed for the facial expressions and non-verbal communication lessons were shared with us through the support of the Jane Goodall Institutes Debby Cox and amazing photography of Andy Nelson. Chimp Have
