The results of our work help us to propose new ideas to benefit coastal communities everywhere.
We are looking for a volunteer field assistant for a project on communicative development of bonobos in the wild. The field site LuiKotal is located in a remote forest area in the southern sector of Salonga National Park, Democratic Republic of Congo. The task will be the collection of focal video data and scan data of bonobo mother-infant-interactions. This involves long-distance walking in difficult terrain under very warm and humid climatic conditions.
