Our Projects

In Ecuador

Led by  Anthony Di Fiore since 1994 Proyecto Primates Ecuador has been developing different research projects in the Yasuni National Park area where 10 species of primates are found. Our reasearch has been done in two sites: Estación Científica Yasuní of Pontificia Universidad la Católica de Ecuador and Tiputini Biodivesity Station of Universidad San Francisco de Quito.

In Colombia

Proyecto Primates Colombia started as a research group in 2005. In 2010 became an official Non-for-profit organization with the main mission of promoting primate research and conservation in this country. 

Led by Dr. Andrés Link and Dr. Gabriela de Luna, Proyecto Primates has been developing different research and conservation projects in Colombia. Our work has been done specially in the Magdalena River Valley, an unstudied area where many endangered species live like the Brown Spider Monkey and the White-Footed Tamarins.

Brown Spider Monkey Project

In December 2005, we started our reserach project on the Brown Spider Monkey behavioral ecology. Brown spider monkeys are one of the most endagered primates in the world. Our research has focused on the study of several aspects of the primate community ecology , social behavior and population structure. An important aspect of the research has been to understand the effects of deforestation on the ecological and behavioral strategies of the Brown Spider Monkeys.

Restoring and Preserving Habitat in the Magdalena River Valley

Preserving and connecting fragmented habitats is key for the survival of many endangered species. We have the following strategies: 1. Conservation agreements with private land owners 2. The creation and conservation of our Natural Reserves 3. Creation of corridors that connect remaining forest 4. Restoration and enrichment of primate habitat 5. Support of regional conservation areas.  

Primates in Fragments

In December 2005, we started our reserach project on the Brown Spider Monkey behavioral ecology. Brown spider monkeys are one of the most endagered primates in the world. Our research has focused on the study of several aspects of the primate community ecology , social behavior and population structure. An important aspect of the research has been to understand the effects of deforestation on the ecological and behavioral strategies of the Brown Spider Monkeys.



The Owl Monkey Project

In 2018 we began the Owl Monkey Project led by  Sebastián Montilla & Andrés Link. The main goal of this project is to describe the behavioral ecology of the unstudied Lemurine Night Monkey (A. lemurinus) and the the gray-handed night monkey (A. griseimembra).
