…I’d say habituation efforts are looking GOOD!
Sometimes tools are unnecessary!!! Flashback to 2016 here…
For the first time, the Issa chimpanzees were nested on BACK TO BACK nights, meaning a FULL DAY follow of a single party of chimpanzees. HONGERINI (CONGRATS) to the team!!!!! It may help that termite fishing season is underway and so ‘follows’ are actually fishing-monitoring at times. Here, a photo by Kyle Sweeney!
