Hands-on Research

In preparation for his latest book–Gibbons: The Invisible Apes–author, anthropologist, and professor John Steckley undertook exhaustive research. He wanted to know everything he could about the primates so often forgotten or mistaken for monkeys.

Like any good anthropologist who strives to understand his subject completely, John spent many an afternoon observing gibbons. He had some particularly memorable visits with Penelope, a beautiful white-handed gibbon who resides just outside Toronto at the Bowmanville Zoo.
