Description

Primates are some of the most intelligent species on the planet. Spend your summer researching primate behavior and ecology in Kenya’s national parks and ranching communities. Kenya is home to numerous primate species such as baboons, vervet monkeys, and patas monkeys. You’ll be out in the field collecting data on these incredible animals, from individual activities to patterns of social behavior – data which helps inform the efforts of local conservation managers and policymakers.
