The Problem Primate Working Group, in collaboration with People and Wildlife, creating conservation solutions for living together.
Human and non-human primates sometimes cause each other problems. Some species of primates are opportunistic in their foraging and when they come across human crops or food supplies this creates conflict. On the other hand, when humans destroy their habitat or with the best intentions approach so close that disease transmission can occur, we cause them problems. Solutions to these problems are being tried and tested wherever they occur but there is a need for better dissemination of the results.
