What is normal Roloway monkey behavior?

It is important that scientists understand just what is normal Roloway monkey behavior. How they interact with each other, other species and with their habitat are all important questions that scientists need to answer in order to better understand the monkeys. Lindsay hopes to observe Roloways feeding, socializing, traveling, communicating, and playing.

There is little information on the number of monkeys or where they are in the forest. Therefore Lindsay's study will focus on taking a census of the Roloway monkey population and collecting data on the general habitat use patterns of this monkey.

So what?

How does answering the question, "What is normal Roloway monkey behavior?" help the Ghanian people create a conservation plan that protects the monkeys and benefits the local people?

You can find out what data we collected and the tools we used to collect the data by checking the daily data page. Just like us though, you will need to analyze the data in order to draw any conclusions.
