Online Now! Chimp matching miniproject in collaboration with PantheraCats with photos from Niokolo Koba National Park!


 Let’s go! Our new chimp matching miniproject in collaboration with PantheraCats with photos from Niokolo Koba National Park is live! Join us and get into some chimp matching ­čÉÁ

Check it out at: https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/sassydumbledore/chimp-and-see-matching-miniproject-niokolo-koba/talk/5499/2670449


This project is hosted on its own chimp&see spin off site and will get updated as photos come in. This project will be a bit different than how we normally do things as it will be photos only, no videos, and the cameras are mostly set up to pick up the sides of animals, so we are in for a challenge! 


We're super excited about this new challenge and think its a great opportunity to get into chimp matching if you aren't already hooked :)

Chimp&See in the S├╝ddeutsche Zeitung

Our amazing scimod Nuria's kids, Laura and Nora, were interviewed  about chimpandsee.org ! Thanks girls for taking the time to talk about your time with us and to S├╝ddeutsche Zeitung for featuring our project ­čÖé


(English translation:

"We support the project Chimp&See. For this you have to watch videos from African forests on a website. They come from cameras that react to movements. They make so many videos that the researchers can't analyze everything on their own. The cameras are already triggered when a branch shakes or a bird flies across the frame. On many videos, nothing can be seen, but sometimes you can see chimpanzees. Then you have to describe how many animals can be seen and what they are doing. Baby chimpanzees are especially cute. Or when you can watch an ape cracking a nut or using a stone as a tool." )
