Abstract

Previous research has highlighted the varied effects of auditory enrichment on different captive animals. This study investigated how manipulating musical components can influence the behavior of a group of captive western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) at Bristol Zoo. The gorillas were ...

Abstract

Western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) are among the most studied nonhuman primates. However, managing them in captivity is not without its challenges. Understanding individual differences between gorillas, as well as differences in group dynamics, may be of high value for more...

Abstract

The long-term management of male gorillas in zoos is a significant challenge. The demographics of the population - specifically a 50/50 sex ratio and the desire to form breeding groups that contain a single male and multiple females - necessitates housing a majority of adult males outside of...

Abstract

Researchers have described apparently self-medicative behaviors for a variety of nonhuman species including birds and primates. Wild chimpanzees, bonobos, and gorillas have been observed to swallow rough leaves without chewing, a behavior proposed to be self-medicative and to aid control of...

Abstract

Information on the distribution and abundance of sympatric great apes (Pan troglodytes troglodytes and Gorilla gorilla gorilla) are important for effective conservation and management. Although much research has been done to improve the precision of nest-surveys, trade-offs between data-reliability ...

Abstract

All the great ape species are known tool users in both the wild and captivity, although there is great variation in ability and behavioral repertoire. Differences in tool use acquisition between chimpanzees and gorillas have been attributed to differing levels of social tolerance as a result of...

Abstract

Regurgitation and reingestion (R/R) is an abnormal behavior observed in great apes analogous to rumination syndrome in humans. A majority of the research on R/R in non-human primates has focused on gorillas and chimpanzees with little information relating to other species that also engage in this...

Abstract

Testing predictions of socioecological models, specifically that the types of feeding competition and social relationships female primates exhibit are strongly influenced by the distribution, density, and quality of food resources, requires studies of closely related populations of subjects living...

Abstract

Objective: Humanity is in search of models for sustainable exploitation of natural resources. It is in this perspective that it has developed in the last several years, the concept of ecotourism. Ecotourism seems to be a cure for the difficult conciliation of the stakes of the conservation and...

Abstract

The Center of Research of Mondika, currently Project of ecotourism of the west plain Gorillas, is situated in the Triangle of Djéké. This zone is important for two reasons: It is a zone that has a very elevated density of the west plain Gorillas and therefore, it forms an important zone for the...
