Thanks much to Felix Othieno from Uganda, who recently brought his monkey-identifying expert skills from Ngogo, in Kibale National Park, to Issa to help train our team (Sept 2017)!
Ed has been awarded a grant from the American Society of Primatologists for his comparative work on red-tailed monkeys in Kibale (Uganda) and Issa! Hongera, Ed!!!

Hongera sana to Katarina Almeida Warren! Read here
