Live Science Fongoli Chimp Photo Story
In other news, we have had a couple of new infants, from Eva (girl, Ella) and Lucille (boy, Zeb), and the group remains stable in light of the ongoing gold mining in Senegal.
The Fongoli research team is minimizing contact with the chimps during the Covid-19 pandemic by doubling our conservative follow distance (distance between us and the chimps) from 10 meters to 20 meters. They are continuing to follow the group members to keep tabs on their health and locations.
Our associated Neighbor Ape organization is funding a mask-making project via a local tailor in Kedougou, Senegal. So far, we have been able to fund the sewing of 300 masks, and these will be distributed in the villages of Fongoli, Petit Oubadji, Djendji, Tenkoto, Ngary, and Ngary-Seekoto.
