  • Two Enormous Contributors Of Great Ape Depletion
    980 words
    The great apes are humankind's closest relatives. Great apes include gorillas, chimpanzees, orangutans, and bonobos, which are also known as pygmy chimps. At the turn of the century, there were approximately one million chimpanzees in Africa. This number has declined down to 150,000. Mountain gorillas have halved in size over the last ten years, leaving only 320 to roam the trees of their homeland. Some say these great apes will face extinction within a decade. Why is this the case and should we...
  • Apes Mimicry Of Humans In The Book

In the movie, the setting takes place on earth in the future where apes deny and are afraid of the past, whereas the setting in the book is on a different planet where apes are civilized and technologically advanced, and the humans were primitive creatures. The orangutans in the movie prevent what happened to the humans from happening to the apes. Orangutans, such as Zaius went to g...
  • Planet Of The Apes
    498 words
    'Planet of the Apes " James Burroughs is a critic. In his article, 'The Fiction of Science Fiction,' he expresses his opinion that the movie, 'Planet of the Apes,' has no value or real meaning for society today. He says it is like other similar science fiction movies made in the 1960's because it is so out-of-date. He seems to feel the only people that would enjoy 'Planet of the Apes' are people who have nothing better to do. I disagree with Mr. Burroughs. In the movie, 'Planet of the Apes,' hum...

  • Major Difference Between The Humans And Apes
