A notification is a method that the game uses to alert you of an event happening with the tribe. They are boxes in the HUD in the top-right of the screen, containing the information regarding the event as well as a relevant image, usually of a sapien involved. If multiple notifications occur at once, or in quick succession, the boxes will form a list of sorts, although they disappear after X seconds. Pressing the keybind for checking notifications (default Enter) will take you to the location or sapien where the event has occurred.
