In the light of the year of the monkey, Sabrina Jabbar will be sharing with us more information on basic macaque behaviors and facial expressions that the public should know of to ensure co-existence and avoid unnecessary conflict.
Common myths about the macaques will be shared, as well as case studies, which will allow the audience to think about and provide answers on what is the best solution to attain co-existence with the macaques.
