Short summary
We investigated collective movements in a group of wild Barbary macaques (Macaca sylvanus) in the Middle Atlas, Morocco. While pauses of the first departing individual enhanced following behavior, the opposite was found for back glancing. To successfully initiate a collective movement, it seemed to be sufficient for a socially integrated group member to take action when other group members signal their willingness prior to departure and to occasionally wait for the group while moving.
