    About This Project

    Unlike the internet-famous Asian slow and slender lorises, Africa's loris species, the potto and the angwantibo, have remained largely unknown. Lorises are a weird and wonderful group of primate with a fascinating array of unique traits. I am studying the African lorises using radio telemetry, surveys, and behavioural observations in the wild jungles of Africa. The goal is to answer major questions about diet, social structure, habitat use, and conservation status.
