Primate and Behaviour Conservation students talk about their field trip to the Ugalla Primate Project

Simon"I was looking at vigilance behaviour of the red tailed monkey within the riverine forests. I hypothesised that when feeding, social monitoring would be lowest due to the attention feeding requires, and because previous studies have observed that social vigilance behaviour is observed greatest when red tails are resting."

– Simon Stringer

 

Hannah"My study was to follow the camp troop of yellow baboons and to observe their foraging behaviours, comparing the frequency of foraging between adult and juveniles. I also collected faecal samples to identify their current diet."

– Hannah Stein

 

Laura"I was interested in how termite mounds affect the surrounding flora and fauna. I visited termite mounds that had camera traps, collecting vegetation and animal presence data then watched the footage to check for animal presence."

– Laura Gatti

 

Cat"I studied yellow baboon responses to predator and conspecific vocalisations and the differences between female and male reactions. During my analysis, I will also look at any differences between adult, sub-adult and juvenille baboons."

– Catherine Sayers
