Conservation of nonhuman primates is a critical issue facing primatologists today. As a professional society, the American Society of Primatologists seeks to establish liaison between our members and conservation groups, research development agencies, and wildlife management/government officials in habitat countries. Our goal is to provide information on the status of wild populations of nonhuman primates and to monitor the primate trade (with special emphasis on the bushmeat crisis) and enactment/abuse of legislation aimed at conservation of nonhuman primates. We also identify and reward individuals deserving of special recognition for their outstanding contributions to primate conservation.
