GAIN(Great Ape Information Network)

The Great Ape Information Network(GAIN)aims to create a database of high quality and transparency on great apes in Japan. As of June, 2020, 303 chimpanzees, 6 bonobos, 20 gorillas, 46 orangutans, and 169 gibbons are living in Japan, all of which are valuable for the promotion of science. To understand the evolutionally origin of humans, research on the non-human great apes is necessary. Today, all species of great apes are endangered in their natural habitats, so those in Japan are also critically important from a conservation perspective as well. Our database contains various information concerning all individuals, including personal histories, family trees, genetic traits, and behavioral characteristics. Please visit our website.
