Primate Conservationist Limelight

It is our pleasure to introduce you to some of the people who endeavor to save species and their habitats and are making change possible. 

Now more than ever, what we know about the world’s most endangered primates rests upon the tireless efforts of people working in the field. Every day in every part of the world—​from deep in the rainforests of Brazil to the most inhospitable terrains in China and all points in between–people are working together to observe, listen, record, and share new information about primates, their ecosystems, and the sustainable practices that will help save us all. 
 
The field of primate conservation has never been more active or more exciting. Technology enables new and more accurate primate and habitat information to be shared across the globe in real-time, every day. And, the world of primate conservation continues to expand as new generations of primatologists, conservationists, and other scientists establish themselves around the world.
