Quotes from the field

We wanted to include some inspirational quotes here that illustrates how zoos can make a difference by supporting already existing field projects and that small grants do make a difference. Below is a quote from Dr. David Morgan of the Goualougo Triangle Ape Project, Nouabale Ndoki National Park to the Brevard Zoo after they provided funding.


"We had been toying with the idea of using remote cameras at termite mounds for several years but were not able to convince our academic colleagues that this was a feasible means to study wild chimpanzees. The Brevard Zoo saw promise in this innovative technology and purchased the first remote camera unit for our chimpanzee tool use studies. This camera worked wonderfully well and showed the world two new types of chimpanzee tool use! The success of this remote technology is shown in the sponsorship of 17 additional cameras for our study and the adoption of this method by other chimpanzee researchers in Gabon, Nigeria and Ivory Coast.”
