What we do

We are doing research, conservation and education on non-human primates with communities living around the KBNP. New local universities are being created in the region, but very few teach wildlife-oriented courses and consequently very few young students are interested in wildlife sciences, including primatology. Due to this lack of interest, there is a great concern for the long-term survival of the rich and diverse non-human primate fauna of DR Congo. Primate Expertise inspires young generation of Congolese primatologists to take the leadership in research and conservation of non-human primates in collaboration with the local communities. Our work has three main pillars programs.
