LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - If you ever need to entertain an ape there's an app for that!

The Louisville Zoo is one of 15 zoos around the world participating in the Apps For Apes program.

The program provides the zoo with an iPad to interact with the orangutans using games.

Zoo officials hope the program is the start of something bigger and have hopes of trying to expand it to other animals at the zoo.
