Conservation Talk

Tracking critically endangered primates in West Africa

Following a Twycross zoo funded project for West African Primate Conservation Action (WAPCA), Ryan Nolan and Adam Welsh from the University of Chester will share their stories of conducting population and habitat surveys for critically endangered primates.

The West African Primate Conservation Action (WAPCA) is an NGO with a goal to effectively preserve primate species in the African Upper Guinean Rainforest, which are seriously threatened by extinction. WAPCA works through community led conservation of wild primates in their habitat and captive breeding within their Endangered Primate Breeding Centre.

The surveys which this field team in Ghana have carried out are vital for the future of the primates which inhabit the areas. As a result, there is now clear evidence that endangered primates live in this forest and therefore consequent effective conservation initiatives can be implemented to ensure their continued persistence. Ryan and Adam will share their experience, highlights and important results from their field study in Ghana.

Please park in the usual zoo car parks and come to the Windows on the Wild Conference suite, in the Himalaya building as you enter the zoo. There will be beverages and biscuits prior to the talk (please arrive at 6.45pm for refreshments).
