See our “collaborator” section for new work by our collaborators Adam van Castern and Elizabeth Fillion, and also “chimpanzee behavioural ecology” for the opening of the Issa seed nursery!

After five years of camera trapping, finally our first confirmed sighting of wild dogs at Issa!!!!
In May, we facilitated and hosted a joint patrol which resulted in the apprehension of illegal loggers and poachers. Great job by all!
