The latest Neotropical Primate Conservation newsletter is out now. To read about how we’ve been getting on in the field during these uncertain times, click here.
Although the Covid-19 pandemic has affected our work in the field, we have had several recent publications in scientific journals. We have our publications available to view at any time, so feel free to have a rummage!
Please feel free to use these infographics about Covid-19. And remember to keep your 36 pygmy marmoset distance from other people!
NPC is still very busy during this period of quarantine. Although here in Peru we have to stay at home, and we ourselves can’t visit the reserves we help protect, the local conservation groups that we work with continue some of their activities. We recently got a report for the villagers of La Primavera who are protecting an area of over 7,500 ha, during recent work building a new control post they were able to get a few quick photos of the Endangered white-bellied spider monkey (Ateles belzebuth) one of the flagship species of the reserve.
During September and November the NPC Colombia team were in Santa Cecilia Colombia developing the ground work for future environmental education work focused on primate conservation, as well as helping in the biodiversity festival organized each year by the Pio XII school. All the activites were led by our volunteers Jennifer Rey-Goyeneche and Rosie Street, giving all their love and energy to the project. Many thanks to them both and to the community of Santa Cecilia.
We hope you enjoy the short video presentation they made covering the amazing project.
