Welcome to Neotropical Primate Conservation
Neotropical Primate Conservation (NPC) is a registered charity dedicated to the conservation of primates and their habitats in South and Central America. We aim to promote conservation and protect biodiversity in the Neotropics by working in several ways.
Protect, educate, promote, investigate, reforest and rescue
Neotropical Primate Conservation (NPC) was founded in 2007 by a group of friends who shared the same passion for conservation. We began as a non-profit organization and were awarded UK charity status in August of 2009 (Registered Charity number 1131122). In 2014 we expanded with a Peruvian branch and again in 2016 and 2021, opening branches in Colombia and Argentina.
What NPC does
It’s not just about primates...
We use monkeys as flagship species to spearhead conservation efforts, but our work doesn’t only benefit primates. In order for primates to survive in the wild they need a thriving ecosystem, which means our efforts also go towards protecting all the other species of plants and animals that live alongside primates and call the rainforest their home. More significantly, we work with local communities as we believe conservation starts with people. Our projects ensure sustainable access to natural resources for local communities.
We believe that conservation information should be free and easily accessible to the public.
For this reason we make our articles and reports available free of charge and publish in open access journals wherever possible.
The list is updated on a regular basis, so if you do not see or cannot access what you need, please check back in soon!
