    About Bonaventura Majolo

    I got a Degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Rome and moved to Stirling University for a Master in animal welfare. I got my PhD at Liverpool John Moores University with a thesis on conflict management in wild Japanese macaques. After two fixed-term posts in South Africa (where I enjoyed working with wild baboons) and at Paington zoo, I joined the University of Lincoln in September 2005. In January 2008, I started a field project in the Middle Atlas Mountains of Morocco to study the socio-ecology of the Barbary macaque (http://barbarymacaque.blogs.lincoln.ac.uk).
