Congo bound!

I’m heading out tomorrow to begin a month-long research trip in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Though our focus is on the monkeys, they share their forest with bonobos and we should have a small (but real!) chance of catching a glimpse. There’s also a bonobo sanctuary outside of the capital, Kinshasa, called Lola Ya Bonobo. The Daily Mail just posted the following image in a larger piece with many more adorable photos. I think it’s a fitting last blog post before I shove off.
