Field Research


Craig Stanford has conducted and directed research on great apes and other primates in tropical Africa since the early 1990’s, and is also involved in the study of the behavioral ecology of other Asian and African wildlife.   He has conducted long term field studies of chimpanzee predatory ecology at Gombe National Park, Tanzania, and of chimpanzee and gorilla sympatric ecology in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda.  Descriptions of these projects and their relevant publications can be found in his web pages.

A major feature of the center is the study and conservation of nonhuman primates, especially the great apes.  Stanford has mentored several doctoral students who are now young scientists engaged in the study of great apes themselves.  He has also trained international primatology students from Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Dr. Roberto Delgado is a primatologist with research expertise in the behavior and ecology of orangutans. He carries out field research in Indonesia.
