Dear friends and colleagues

I am delighted to announce that Professor Tetsuro Matsuzawa will be giving a presentation at the University of Stirling.

Professor Matsuzawa is famous for his research on chimpanzee cognition, combining a long-term study of chimpanzees in the wild and testing them in captivity (the Ai project).

His findings demonstrate the sophisticated cognitive abilities of chimpanzees that have had important welfare consequences (e.g. adding to the evidence underpinning changes to their use in research and testing).

Date - Thursday 16th March

Time - 4pm

Location -  2A73 in the Cottrell Building, University of Stirling

Title - SAGA: An attempt to promote the welfare of chimpanzees and other nonhuman primates in Japan

SAGA stands for Support for African/Asian Great Apes and their website is here: http://www.saga-jp.org/indexe.html

I attach a poster that I hope you might print out and put up, or please feel free to send this message around to colleagues.
