First sights

Sitatunga are a rare type of antelope native to Africa, luckily for us they are abundant here on the island. There are few who stay close to the residential areas on the island, like this beautiful lady below.

This morning, and every day since my arrival I have been greeted by vervet monkeys. They forage close to our research house feeding on fruits and leaves. The berries of a palm fruit are a little too latexy for my taste, but he seems to enjoy them.

About Nadejda Josephine

I am currently studying for a doctorate in Anthropology at University College London. My fieldwork takes place on Rubondo Island, Lake Victoria in Tanzania. The research looks at the nesting patterns and nest architecture in the Rubondo chimpanzees. I began the work in April 2012 and will remain on the island until at least October 2013. I write this blog so as not to forget this wonderful island and the random events which occur throughout my fieldwork.
