Primates in Peril

Find out about the work of the  

IUCN / SSC Primate Specialist Group

“Active throughout the tropical world, working in dozens of nations in Africa, Asia and Latin America, the PSG promotes research on the ecology and conservation of hundreds of primate species — monkeys, apes, lemurs and their many nocturnal relatives. Now more than ever they need our intervention: one in every four primate species is threatened or endangered, and the double hammer of overhunting and forest devastation has brought some species to within a few dozen heads of final extinction.” (IUCN/SSC).
