NPC Argentina Projects
Created in 2021, NPC Argentina team features some of the countries leading primatologists
Some of these species are threatened with extinction, including the brown howler monkey (Alouatta guariba clamitans), and the spectacular black and gold howler monkey (Alouatta caraya), Azara’s night monkey (Aotus azarae), and Azara’s capuchin (Sapajus cay) and are all listed as Vulnerable in Argentina. Habitat loss and hunting are the main threats to these species, and understanding their ecological and conservation needs will be priorities for our work. Argentina has a long history of investigation, and is one of the most advanced countries in the neotropics with regards to primatology. NPC Argentina aims to build on this history, carrying out investigation and applied conservation work.
