RESEARCH

WATCH is associated with numerous universities around the world, and we have hosted researchers, honours, masters and post-doctorate students. All the research that is conducted at the center is non-invasive  and the studies don’t harm our vervets in any way.

A few examples of  research conducted here at the center include:

-General behavioral studies

-Alarm call recognition in captive primates

 -Fecal bacteria content of wild monkeys versus monkeys in captivity

-Self recognition in primates

-Cognitive capacity and image discrimination in wild versus captive vervet monkeys

​-And even a photography student completing a project on primate hands and feet

 

 We have had fantastic experiences and learnt from these researchers and students and we hope to continue having them in the future.

 

If you want to apply for a non-invasive study, please contact us directly by mail.
