Education & Outreach

We’re happy to get involved with great apes of all shapes and sizes! If you are a teacher in Scotland and would like someone from our group to visit your class for a day to run a lesson on great ape behaviour and communication, please contact us.

If you are a bit further afield, but still want to teach your students about animal communication, we have designed a lesson plan for Secondary School students, that includes participation in our gesture experiment. The lesson aims to get students thinking about how to study behaviour and communication in other species.

This screenshot gives you a taste of what the lesson plan looks like:
