What the Heck is Project A.P.E.?
Project APE LogoogoL EPA tcejorPShort answer: a publicity stunt.

But you came here for a longer answer...
The Publicity Stunt
Rule the Planet Hordes leaving in search of APE caches in May of 2001, 20th Century Fox, was preparing to release its summer blockbuster, “Planet of the Apes.” They wanted a publicity stunt, and saw that computer geeks everywhere seemed to be flocking to this new hobby, Geocaching. To try and capatalize on this potential market, Fox Studios formulated a “sub-plot” that had absolutely nothing to do with the movie: Renegade humans were trying to reveal an “Alternative Primate Evolution” theory by placing artifacts around the world. Code Name: Project A.P.E.

In other words, Fox Studios was placing movie artifacts in Geocaches. First ones there get the best trinkets.
