Overview:

Conservation of nonhuman primates is a critical issue facing primatologists today. As a professional society, the American Society of Primatologists seeks to establish liaison between our members and conservation groups, research development agencies, and wildlife management/government officials in habitat countries. Our goal is to provide information on the status of wild populations of nonhuman primates and to monitor the primate trade (with special emphasis on the bushmeat crisis) and enactment/abuse of legislation aimed at conservation of nonhuman primates. We also identify and reward individuals deserving of special recognition for their outstanding contributions to primate conservation.

Conservation Small Grants: 

Grant proposals are solicited for conservation research or related projects, including conservation education. ASP members working in habitat countries are especially urged to apply or to help someone from a habitat country submit a meaningful project that can be a portion of a larger effort.  The ASP Conservation Grants are awarded strictly for the purpose of supporting primate conservation.

In general, the ASP Conservation Committee likes to see funds used for local employee salaries and support. In addition, we fund research supplies, educational material, local travel, reasonable research fees, and lab fees for samples collected in the field. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
