The Wenner-Gren Symposium: The Great Apes Revisited

* The Wenner-Gren symposium of the Great Apes Revisited organized by Bill McGrew and myself was held at Hotel Cabo San Lucas of Baja California, Mexico between November 12 and 19, 1994. Participants were Christophe Boesch, Barbara Fruth, Diane Doran, Jane Goodall, Charlotte Hemelrjik, Takayoshi Kano, Suehisa Kuroda, Linda Marchant, Tetsuro Matsuzawa, John Mitani, Jim Moore, Sue Savage-Rumbaugh, Carel van Schaik, Caroline Tutin, Frans de Waal, David Watt, Frances White, Richard Wrangham, Juichi Yamagiwa and Adrienne Zihlman, in addition to the organizers and the President of WGF, Sidel Silverman and her staff, Laurie and Mike.

The outline of the symposium will be reported by Linda Marchant in Current Anthropology in near future and an anthropology of the spoken papers will be published by August 1996.

Caroline recited her limericks just before the farewell dinner in the evening of November 18. Sue completed to write her own after she returned to Atlanta. These two lovely pieces of limericks are reproduced here with the permission of the authors.
