Urban Primates Working Group

As human habitats expand, we increasingly come into contact with primates which can adapt to living in our towns and cities. This group works to make urban environments safer for primates and people in the shared space of urban, semi-urban and urbanising rural areas.

2022 Activities

We are working on Best Practice Guidelines for the Use of Artificial Canopy Bridges for Primates in collaboration with the Primate Specialist Group team developing Best Practice Guidelines for Managing Primates in Fragments
