Dr. Sarah Dunphy-Lelii ’96 recently spent her sabbatical visiting Uganda studying greeting behaviors among mother and infant chimps.
For ten hours each day, she followed and observed 220 chimpanzees in the Kibale National Forest. She joined a team of six colleagues from the University of Michigan, Yale University, and Boston University who have been observing and writing about these wild primates since 1997. During her time in the forest, Sarah lived in a tent and had no running water or electricity.
Sarah will speak to George School students about her experience and studies during assembly on Friday, September 22, 2017 in Walton Auditorium.
