NPC was set up in order to promote the conservation of Neotropical forest habitat and wildlife through various means. These include: land protection, research, improvement of degraded habitat for wildlife, creation of public awareness, and facilitation of the commercialisation of sustainable, ecological products on behalf of local people. Since 2007 NPC has been using primates as “flagship species” for community conservation projects.
New England Primate Conservancy is an animal protection and wildlife conservation organization that makes its greatest impact through education.
It is driven by a commitment to leave a legacy of hope and tools to build a better tomorrow for all the Earth's citizens.
The Primate Specialist Group is a network of scientists and conservationists who stand against the tide of extinction which threatens humanity’s closest kin.
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.
