Conservation Award Recipients

Since 1989, the American Society of Primatologists has provided funding in support of research- and education-based projects aimed at effecting primate conservation. Riley & Zak (2015) developed and administered a survey to former grant recipients from the years 1997–2012 to assess the conservation impact of ASP funded projects. The results highlight the importance of garnering local support for primate conservation projects, sustaining a long-term research presence at field sites, clearly defining terms used in monitoring and evaluation, building evaluation into the design of primate conservation projects, and encouraging and enabling researchers to share both successes and failures. You can read more about the impact of the ASP Conservation Small grant program with complimentary access to the Riley & Zak paper.
