Chimp and See (and Hear!) #3

Sometimes, our most interesting discoveries aren’t what we see, but what we hear!  In this series of posts, we’ll share some of the fascinating sounds of Africa that we’ve heard in the Chimp & See project.

This time, we'll let YOU try to guess what the sound is!  In this clip, we see a squirrel, but it’s not the one making all the racket.  Can you guess what is?  Here’s a hint, it is 2 different species of the same kind of animal.

Think you know what animals are making the sound?  Keep reading to find out the answer...

Leopard cubs in Gabon

A little taste of what's to come on Chimp&See (in late 2016 or 2017) and what's happening in the field right now! This is from southeast Gabon and part of our collaborative work with the Agence Nationale Des Parcs Nationaux Du Gabon, The Aspinall Foundation and Panthera.

Chimp and See (and Hear!) #2

Sometimes, our most interesting discoveries aren’t what we see, but what we hear!  In this series of posts, we’ll share some of the fascinating sounds of Africa that we’ve heard in the Chimp & See project.

Today, we'll hear from the birds found in West & Central Africa.  Many of our video clips have at least one bird vocalizing in the background, and every once in a while we catch a glimpse of these beautiful animals.  Here are some of the unique birds we've heard during this project!

Included here:
White-breasted guineafowl, Hadada ibis, Long-tailed glossy starling (2 different vocalizations), Yellow-casqued hornbill, White-crested hornbill, and Great blue turaco
