A few ago, scientists at the Max Planck Institute received an aluminum case with 21 chimpanzee skulls arrived at the institute from the Democratic Republic of Congo http://www.scilogs.com/i_eva/21-skulls/

The skulls are a treasure trove for the scientists at the institute. They allow scientists to link behavioural to environmental data, to compare different cultures of chimpanzees across their habitat range, and to preserve as much material from our closest living ancestors as possible, before they will be extinct. Because the prospects for conservation are bleak.
