Welcome to the Banded Mongoose Research Project
Banded Mongoose Research Project
We are a team of researchers who have studied the behaviour and ecology of wild banded mongooses in Uganda continuously since 1995. Banded mongooses are the rougher, tougher cousins of the meerkat, and have fascinating social lives. On these pages you will find out more about what makes banded mongooses so special, why scientists are so interested in them, and what the can tell us about other social animals, including ourselves!
