Primate Tourism Working Group

Primate tourism is the viewing of primates in the wild, in anthropogenic landscapes or in captive settings. Best Practice Guidelines for Great Ape Tourism are available but there are no similar guidelines for other primate species. We are currently working on detailed species and region-wide guidelines to increase the numerous benefits of primate tourism and decrease its costs. We are also developing an app in collaboration with the IUCN Primate Specialist Group Section for Small Apes.
