Introducing our newest Volunteer, Emma
I am a recent graduate from California State University, Los Angeles and received my degree in Anthropology with a minor in biology. I am obsessed with primates and do lots of work with captive primates. I studied ringtail lemurs at the Los Angeles Zoo and completed a project on their agonism. I am also a research volunteer at the Los Angeles zoo studying orangutans and gorillas. I also work at the Gibbon Conservation Center in which we care for and house Gibbons with aim of eventually releasing them back to South East Asia. I also enjoy hiking in my free time with my dog Chewie and camping throughout Southern California. I am excited for this experience of working with lemurs in the wild and working to conserve them!
