Unbreakable Bond

Unbreakable Bond
by Pedro Jarque Krebs

A recent study has found that we share around 99 percent of our DNA with chimpanzees, making them our nearest relatives. From a genetic perspective, this makes them almost identical to ourselves. There are researchers who propose to have them included in the genus Homo, i.e., humans, a source of great controversy for the scientific community. It is estimated that around 200,000 remain in the world and are on the red list of endangered species.
