Samango Sleepover

One of the on-going research projects at Lajuma focuses on the samango monkey’s selection of trees for use as sleeping sites. To assist in data collection for this study, three courageous researchers; Sune, Camilla, and David, set out to camp in the forest throughout the night to observe samango behaviour while at their sleeping sites. Equipped with essential equipment of sturdy sleeping bags, powerful head torches, and plenty of popcorn; the researchers survived a long night of ominous rustling in the brush, a mysterious pair of orange glowing eyes, and the risk of being pooed on by monkeys overhead. The night was a success and yielded the first bit of data on samango behaviour at their sleeping sites.
