Apes at Smithsonian’s National Zoo get iPads
| by Nikhil Subramaniam |
Apes at the Smithsonian's National Zoo have it good. The living conditions are immaculate and the food supply never dries up. And now they have iPads too. Apple’s tablet is hard to afford for most human beings, but that hasn’t stopped the National Zoo from initiating the Orangutan Outreach and Apps for Apes programmes, bringing iPads to the primates.

The animal lovers amongst you who would like to contribute to the zoo’s initiative can can donate iPads to Orangutan Outreach. They can also donate iTunes gift cards so that the National Zoo can purchase more apps that keep their apes happy. Donated iPads are sent to zoos that cannot afford or acquire iPads, but would like to participate in the programme.
