The book tells the story of the adventures of Katie Hall and Shannon Switzer throughout their stay in the Budongo Forest Reserve in Uganda where they participated in research on the effects of the encroachment of civilization on the area's chimpanzees. The book is illuminating, funny, and full of heart while also raising important questions about the future of these beloved animals in a world where humans' needs are seemingly pre-eminent.
I am a PhD candidate at University of St Andrews, where I am studying great ape social attention. You might enjoy my book "The Great Ape Adventure," about my chimpanzee research in Uganda. I have also recently published a photo album from Kenya.
