Claudine tells us about the SECAS Conference

We gathered around the topic of the Great Apes, in a town hall in the Paris region. The Bonobos were first on the list with the showing of “Bonobo, le dernier refuge” (Bonobo, the last refuge) a film by Dominique Hennequin, this was followed by a personal film by André Lucas on the mountain gorillas during his year long visit to Karisoke in the 70’s. And so we discovered that we had both travelled around that area at around the same time, back in the days of Diane Fossey, when the gorillas where of no interest to tourists… The public gathered for the conference marvelled at the dialogue that spoke of another time…
