This field school focuses on the behavioural ecology of three sympatric Bornean primate species in a tropical peat-swamp forest: orangutans, gibbons and red langurs. Students will explore these animals’ lives, learning how to undertake studies to assess population status, activity patterns, diet, ranging and social behaviour, and exploring the challenges and potential solutions for Borneo primate conservation. The school is based in the Sebangau Forest, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia, home to the world’s largest protected population of the Bornean orangutan and white-bearded gibbon. Living in a functioning research camp, and with teaching led by school directors with over 20 years’ primate research experience on Borneo, you will be immersed in this field research environment and undertake ‘living lectures’ with real researchers and real data being collected to help understand and conserve these unique species.
