One of the surveys the forest team undertake on a weekly basis is Primate community. We are collecting information on; species presence and distribution, population density, any seasonal variation, how they use the habitat, demographic data, as well contributing data on Angolan Black & White Colobus in Kenya. We carry out these surveys by walking down straight line transects recording any primates that we spot. But just who are we looking for?...
