  2. L’aprenentatge social és un mecanisme bàsic per al desenvolupament dels comportaments culturals. Disciplines com l’arqueologia prehistòrica han posat de manifest que aquesta capacitat fou fonamental per a l’adaptació de l’espècie humana i el seu èxit evolutiu. No obstant, sabem poca cosa sobre les seves arrels evolutives, i si les formes d’aprenentatge social humana son compartides amb les d'altres espècies. Per això l’estudi d’aquesta mena de qüestions en els ximpanzés es força important, ja que ens permet endinsar-nos en els orígens de la conducta cultural i suggerir models per tal de comprendre els escenaris evolutius que varen facilitar la seva selecció en l’espècie humana.

  3. A video by Gorilla Trek Africa showing you the highlight of a trip to Uganda - GorillaTrekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Not only is Bwindi a world heritage site with a stunning rainforest that is home to 120 mammals and some 348 species of bird. It is most famed for being home to over half the world's population of endangered mountain gorillas.

    In this video you will join a group as they trek through the rainforest to see one of the groups of gorillas. You spend an hour with the incredible creatures - an experience that's been called the 'most incredible animal encounter on the planet' and 'a life changing experience'.

  5. Deforestation is responsible for approximately 17% of global greenhouse gas emissions, and is therefore a major contributor to climate change, but also to the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services and a direct threat to Asia’s great ape – the orangutan. Between 2005–2010, Indonesia had accelerating forest loss compared to 2000–2005 and is within the highest five countries for percentage of primary forest loss globally.

    Much of the deforestation is caused by both illegal and short-term economic gains, often undermining long-term development goals. The Orangutan Report quantifies the economic trade-offs between unsustainable and sustainable forms of land use, and considers the role of Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) and broader Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) schemes in achieving balanced conservation and development objectives.
