About our Research

Cambridge University Gorilla Cannon Research welcomes all who wish to conduct research into the forefront of animal artillery whilst studying in Cambridge.

We welcome any ability - from those who have never seen a gorilla (or cannon) in their life to competent ape blasters.

With two weekly sessions at the firing range, plus a whole host of social events throughout the year, we are an active society with something for everyone.
