Brief knowledge on Chimpanzee Research Project in Kibale National Park

The chimpanzee project in Kibale National park was started in 1987 by Dr. Wrangham with the aim of studying chimpanzee’s behavior in the wild. The study is a long term that lasts to 60 years. Data about these animals is collected on a daily basis to understand their social interactions, Party composition, Area Rang, feeding habits and their general health. The studies are based on the data collected in the field that include detailed records of play, tool use, hunting, aggression, and forest phrenology.

The analysis got from the research has led to a deeper understanding of human evolutionary ecology and chimpanzee conservation
