Three webinars were presented virtually in Spring 2021 and addressed the complexities of impacts on primate conservation: a) the extraction of minerals, and effects on human & non-human primate well-being and biodiversity; b) roads & agroforestry that incise primate habitats and innovations to help primates bridge gaps; and c) the impact of primate hunting & wildlife markets on indigenous human populations. Recordings of the webinars can be found on the “Conservation videos” tab.
