August 5, 2008 6:16 PM
One of the main goals of the Goualougo Ape Project is to provide scientific training and educational opportunities to Congolese nationals who are working to conserve wildlife. In August 2008, Mr. Onononga was awarded a small grant from the Rufford Foundation to attend the International Primatological Society Congress that was held in Edinburgh, Scotland. The congress was attended by primatologists and conservationists from around the world. Mr. Onononga’s presentation comparing the standing crop and marked-nest methods of surveying great ape nests was very well-received.
