Part of "Primaction: Protecting the Western Chimpanzee and other primates from illegal logging and hunting in Guinea-Bissau". Our team strive to improve the conservation of threatened primates in Guinea-Bissau. Specifically, we specialise in applying molecular tools and spatial analyses to update the distribution and identify populations vulnerable to extinction. Aiming to become an expert in Ethnoprimatology and, to contribute to primate conservation through community-based actions
The West-African sooty mangabey (Cercocebus atys) is threatened by habitat loss, hunting for meat consumption, and mortality during crop-foraging events. The species' overall demographic trend is unknown. Presence and distribution in Guinea-Bissau, a country neighbored by Senegal and Republic of Guinea, was confirmed in 1946 but the species was dec...
Estimar a área de ocorrência geográfica de primatas não-hu-manos é fulcral para a sua conservação. O uso de técnicas não-invasivas de identificação molecular permite confirmar a presença de espécies de difícil observação direta e/ou raras. O macaco verde (Chlorocebus sabaeus), o macaco mona (Cercopithecus campbelli) e o macaco petaurista (Cercopith...
