Ian Gilby

Ian likes monkeying around. He is a researcher for the Jane Goodall Institute's Center for Primate Studies at the University of Minnesota. He studies the hunting and meat sharing behaviors among chimpanzees in Gombe, Africa. Ian believes that the more we know about animal behavior, the better we'll be able to conserve their natural habitats! He always wanted to be a vet as a young child because he enjoyed being around animals.
