Coming up in our next ‘Burning Questions LIVE’: Meet Joys, a ‘Monkey Walk’ guide with the Jane Goodall Institute (Singapore) (JGIS)! She educates the public about Singapore’s most familiar primate, the Long-tailed Macaque, by volunteering to lead guided walks at Hindhede Estate.
So fire away any Burning Questions you have about primates, being an outreach volunteer, and human-macaque conflicts in Singapore.
