Gorillas in the midst of war
Did you know that Gorillas are amongst the closest relations of humans?
Saturday 18 August, 2018
Nairobi National Museum, Louis Leakey Auditorium.
"Gorillas in the midst of war: health studies on one of our closest relatives"
Talk by Prof John E Cooper and Dr Margaret E Cooper - Veterinary pathologist and animal lawyer
Although gorillas do not occur in the wild in Kenya, the National Museums of Kenya (NMK) has a substantial collection of gorilla material and Kenyans have contributed to studies on the two extant species.
In their presentation, the Coopers will share their two years’ experience in working with the mountain gorillas in Central Africa, discuss the history of the discovery, and the role played by Dr Louis Leakey and others, in learning more about the biology of these usually gentle and elusive great apes.
NOTE: There will be a behind the scenes tour of Osteology dept, Nairobi National Museum, to view some gorilla materials.
