Research grant

Le Conservatoire pour la Protection des Primates is a non-profit organisation founded by the French Primate Park “LA VALLEE DES SINGES” to fund conservation programs for wild populations of primates.

In 2009 Le Conservatoire pour la Protection des Primates initiated the La Vallée des Singes Conservation Research Grant to support research that can benefice the conservation of primates worldwide.

We will give priority to studies that involve, in their natural habitat, little known and (probable) endangered species. Studies on the distribution and taxonomy of endangered primates are urgently needed, and will receive priority. We give priority to studies conducted by citizens from the country in which the primates are found. The intent is to provide support for research that can be used to formulate and to implement conservation plans for the species studied.
