Relaxed Bonobos: Have long found primatologists' Jane Goodall et al., fascinating, 1960s, Living like the apes they were studying, Bonobos

I've long found primatologists'

Jane Goodall, Leakey, Frans de Waal, Wrangham, et al.,

fascinating,

because many of them began their careers in the 1960s trying,

in part,

to live like the apes they were studying.

They focused on becoming apes,

and I think Jane tried to raise her son as a chimp,

for a time,

to learn about them.

Partly a 1960's thing,

they were, and have been, also engaged in serious research,

and science,

(and conservation), ever since.

The Primatology, wiki, subject page at World University and School -

http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Primatology
-

is one web site where YOU can teach & learn about this.


... just added a new, open-course-ware, primatology course here from

the University of Notre Dame:

http://ocw.nd.edu/anthropology/primate-behavior


... and just added a reference about the National Institutes of Health restricting use of chimps in research -

http://science.slashdot.org/story/11/12/16/1333224/nih-restricts-use-of-chimpanzees-in-labs
-

... but check out the videos.


I find Bonobos particularly fascinating.


(WUaS is like Wikipedia with MIT Open Course Ware).




World Univ & Sch also has a Bonobos chimpanzee, wiki subject here -

http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Bonobo_chimpanzee -

with fascinating, growing, wiki resources.
