Sonso community

The Sonso chimpanzees have been studied continuously since 1990. This community lives near the site of a former sawmill. It is called the Sonso community after the River Sonso, which runs through its range. In mid 1998, this community numbered 53 individuals; in 2006 the number had gone up to 75. As of 2014 the estimate of its regular members numbers around 85 individuals, all identified and named and recognized by our Field Assistants.
