Discover the new monitoring systems we have to improve our primates lives.
Also at night
The quality of a good night’s sleep affects the next day’s activity. That’s why we monitor the temperature and humidity in the bedrooms and the night-time sounds. How many times have they woken up? Have any of them been coughing? Everything helps us to improve their well-being.
Using faecal and hair samples from the chimps after the association sessions, we obtain an objective measure of their stress. One more tool to help caregivers with the new steps to take in these critical moments.
These moments can be triky. You can see it by yourself in the following videos, or the first and second association session between Toni and Waty.
