Anthropology 130 Extra Credit – Chimp&See
20 points maximum
Citizen science is the name given to programs that allow the public to contribute to
scientific research. One citizen science project is called Chimp&See (get it?). Volunteers
can view short video clips taken from motion-sensitive wildlife cameras in Africa and
attempt to identify any animals that are visible. Who knows what you could see!
Part One
1. Optional: Watch my tutorial video here for the general feel, though the system
recently updated: https://youtu.be/zuwhBkI-YfA
2. Go to the Chimp&See website: http://www.chimpandsee.org
3. Click on the green “Get Started” button to proceed.
4. Follow the instructions to understand the interface and the procedure.
5. For each video clip, mark any visible animals and their behavior. Do not worry about
being wrong since many volunteers will see each clip to reach a consensus. Make
your best guess for each one.
6. Make notes about what you saw to help you complete this assignment.

Part Two
After viewing at least 25 clips, you can proceed with the assignment. Try to have at least
one primate sighting, though this may not happen due to chance. Write at least a
paragraph about what you saw, answering each of the following questions if applicable:
1. What types of environments did you see?
2. What primates did you see?
3. What primate behaviors did you witness?
4. What other animals did you see living in the same environment?
5. What surprised you about what you saw?
Your writeup should be at least 300 words. Turn in your completed assignment on
Canvas or in class by the due date.
Grading
A full score will be given to a reflection that addresses all of the required points.
Conclusion
Chimp&See is very addictive! I urge you to continue with the project if you find it
enjoyable since your effort goes toward a great cause. Your instructor has viewed over
2 of 3
1000 clips. He has seen leopards, elephants, porcupines, warthogs, and of course
many monkeys and chimpanzees.

Anthropology 130 Extra Credit – AAPA Statement on Race
20 points maximum
The AAPA is the American Association of Physical Anthropologists, the largest and oldest
national professional organization for people in this field. It was founded in 1930! As
representatives of this profession, they release statements addressing issues of concern in our
culture, offering their evidence-based perspective.
Part One
Go to http://physanth.org/about/position-statements/aapa-statement-race-and-racism-2019/ and
read the AAPA Statement on Biological Aspects of Race (American Association of Physical
Anthropologists, 2019). The AAPA statement was written by a committee of physical
anthropologists to address how the concept of race as thought of by the public does not match
what anthropologists have found.
Part Two
Reflect on race, anthropology, and our culture. Answer each part of the question.
a. How does the public view of race differ from the anthropological view?
b. This statement is very new, from April 2019. Do you think this message is helpful in
educating the public? Why or why not?

Conclusion
Any time I see a living thing I don’t recognize (or I’m really bored), I bring out the Seek

way.
