What can you do to save primates and forests?

 NPC Donations

Current projects being run by NPC include:

Yellow-Tailed Woolly Monkey Conservation

Our first and longest running project. In 2007 we started research and conservation work in Peru for the Critically Endangered yellow-tailed woolly monkey (Oreonax flavicauda) one of the worlds least know and most threatened primates.

Reserves and Protected Areas

As an extension of our yellow-tailed woolly monkey project we have been developing community and privately run reserves where this and other species are found. 

Wildlife Rescue and Releases

Often overlooked by conservationists, the illegal trade in wildlife is now a major threat to the survival of many species. We work with police and rescue centres to fight hunting and hopefully release animals back to the wild.

Conservation Network

Our most ambitious project to date, setting up a network of local community associations and NGO’s to better coordinate and manage a large network of protected areas and conservation projects throughout northern Peru.

Landscape Level Conservation

Conservation of all landscape types is necessary to ensure the survival of many species. We run projects that conserve forest bridges and lessen the impact of human activities between protected areas.

Reforestation in the Tropical Andes, Peru

One of the best was to mitigate the effects of deforestation is to replant degraded areas. Our project uses only native tree species that are beneficial to both wildlife and humans. Conservation of all landscape types is necessary to ensure the survival of many species. We run projects that conserve forest bridges and lessen the impact of human activities between protected areas.
