BSc Applied Animal Science graduate Susan Hill recently presented her dissertation during a Primate Society of Great Britain (PSGB) meeting at London’s Royal Geographical Society.

The meeting was to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the PSGB, the UK’s national primatological society, dedicated to the advancement of primate research, conservation, and captive care. The two-day event included talks, discussions and social events.

Susan entered a quick fire session where she had to explain the findings of her dissertation in 60 seconds

Susan presented her work alongside respected primatologists Dr Jane Goodall, DBE, patron of the Primate Society of Great Britain, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace and Dr Frans de Waal, Dutch primatologist and ethologist.
