Josh Foer visits the Goualougo Triangle

September 5, 2008 6:17 PM

In April 2008, Joshua Foer (a writer on assignment for National Geographic Magazine) visited the Goualougo Triangle Ape Project. We were hoping that Josh might have the opportunity to observe some of the unique tool using behavior of these apes. During one of our last days in the forest with him, Josh observed a young female pounding for honey. While she did not obtain much honey, she did use eight different tools, showing Joshua just how persistent chimpanzees can be when trying to get at this food resource. Josh’s article in National Geographic magazine is scheduled for December 2008 and will accompany photographs by Ian Nichols.
