    They’ve done a lot of apes research lately and this time around is about “forgiveness.” We once thought that forgiveness only applies to humans. They’re now beginning to discover that it exists in most/all species and to understand why we forgive is by studying other species.

    Why do species forgive? Most importantly, why do we forgive? Is this something we’re born with OR do we have to Learn?
