Wildlife Conservation Society writes about work through David Morgan and Goualougo Triangle Ape Project
New research by David Morgan, Crickette Sanz, and others examines the impact of tree logging on the ecological community in northern Republic of Congo. The article "African apes coexisting with logging: Comparing chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes troglodytes) and gorilla (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) resource needs and responses to forestry activities" published in Biological Conversation compares the tree inventory data of the local logging company with the behaviors of the gorillas and chimpanzees in those areas. According to Morgan, it is the most detailed survey ever done of chimpanzees and gorillas under such disturbance. The findings will be used to guide future standards and safeguards for wildlife in the area.
