Field Station: Centre de Recherche de Primatologie (CRP) Simenti
We operate a field station in the Parc National de Niokolo Koba (PNNK) in Senegal since April 2007. The field station "Centre de Recherche de Primatologie (CRP) Simenti" was founded by the Cognitive Ethology Laboratory of the German Primate Center in cooperation with:
- Direction des Parcs Nationaux (DPN: Senegalese National Parks Department).
- Department de l'Environment (MEPN: Senegalese Ministry of the Environment)
We also collaborate with the Université Cheikh Anta Diop and the École Inter-États des Sciences et Médecine Vétérinaires (EISMV; both in Dakar) and the Endocrinology Laboratory and the Primate Genetics Laboratory at the German Primate Center.
