Project details

In South Africa, on the Cape Peninsula, baboons are in high conflict with humans raiding houses, businesses or even people themselves. By using classical methodologies in behavioural ecology (direct observations) and cutting edge technologies (fitting individuals with accelerometers and GPS), we aim to understand both how baboons use their landscape, and the ecological mechanisms that govern this. With this information, we aim to inform the management of the Cape Peninsula baboon population.
