Our intrepid monkey-chaser recently completed her Master’s thesis on the banded leaf monkeys in Singapore, after two grueling years of following monkeys through swamps, forest vines and dense undergrowth.
Much of her results (including exclusive videoclips of monkeys going through their daily routines) can be found regularly updated here and the latest findings from her thesis on the reproduction and infant development of the monkeys are now available in the latest issue of Raffles Bulletin of Zoology.
This WRSCF grant will support her continued efforts to investigate population changes and feeding ecology of the local population of banded leaf monkeys for an additional year. This will yield important information on their reproduction and genetics, which will help in their conservation in Singapore.
Way to go, Andie!
