It is estimated that some species of nonhuman primates will be extinct in less than 20 years, which makes the conservation of these animals more important now than ever. Current techniques are expensive in both time and money and aren't completely successful in curbing their decline. This project seeks to improve current nonhuman primate captive management and conservation programmes by exploring the current attitudes, from those working directly and indirectly with nonhuman primates, towards using personality, technology, and behavioural conditioning as a tool to improve these strategies.
