Inkawu Vervet Project

The site is located in Mawana Game Reserve, near Swart Mfolozi in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa, on a 12,000h private ranch where multiple groups of fully habituated vervet monkeys have been studied for several years. The project is operated by Dr. Erica van de Waal & Dr. Erik Willems, as part of research collaboration between Professors Redouan Bshary & Klaus Zuberbühler (University of Neuchâtel), Carel van Schaik & Michael Krützen (University of Zurich) and Andy Whiten (University of St Andrews).
