KEEP IN MIND: When you walk up to any animal enclosure, the behaviormay appear to be erratic or random; maybe “nothing” is happening. However,much of the behavior is patterned in response to a stimulus not necessarily evidentto us. Be patient. The best you can do is to carefully & accurately describe theirphysical activity & note its context at the time. There is no magic bullet! Do yourbest.The Enclosure. If you include photos, do provide SHORT CAPTIONS. If you areartistic, make a sketch of the enclosure and include it with your report. While thereis no ironclad page count for this project, please do not use pictures & drawings asfillers! Your thoughts are paramount.C. DRAFTING YOUR REPORT: After you have completed your observations,go aside and carefully read over your notes. Are there any notable behaviorpatterns, anything that indicates relationships, friendships, or pecking order? Youshould draw on the physical characteristics of the chimpanzee provided in Ch. 8.Integrate key information from the other required readings. Omit it and you willlose points. Don’t fret; a good faith effort is what counts here.D. ORGANIZING YOUR REPORT: A good report will be well organizedaround the “Grading” topics. About four to five pages (double spaced) isacceptable. This does NOT include your cover page, any photos, charts or maps.Use one-inch margins and avoid “padding” with empty spaces between sections orparagraphs.
