How do seasonal changes in the Roloway monkeys' habitat
affect their behavior?

The ecology of the West African rainforest is greatly affected by changes in rainfall. The rainy season is considered a “time of plenty” with many fruits and flowers available to eat. During the dry season animals often have to roam farther looking for food as it is not as readily available. We will be attempting to understand how these seasonal changes affect the monkeys.

So what?

How does answering the question, "How do seasonal changes in the the Roloway monkeys' habitat affect their behavior?" help us 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.
