This project is a long-term study focusing on the behavioral ecology, physiology, and health of wild chimpanzees in the Kanyawara community of Kibale National Park, Uganda. Dr. Martin Muller is co-director of KCP, and Dr. Melissa Emery Thompson is a senior researcher with the project. KCP provides opportunities for UNM graduate students to conduct summer projects or dissertation research at an established research camp. Students can also supplement their own research with long-term data from the project.
