Assessing the distributions and relative abundances of diurnal primates (Papio cynocephalus and Chlorocebus pygerythrus) in Vwaza Marsh Wildlife Reserve, Malawi

Description

Why monitor monkeys in Malawi? At present, there are very few studies addressing primate research and conservation in Malawi, despite up to seven primate species recorded to be present throughout the country. Primates are absent from nearly all national conservation action plans and policies. This research aims to provide baseline data on the two diurnal primates of Vwaza Marsh Wildlife Reserve (VMWR), which will contribute to this dearth identified by the Illegal Wildlife Trade Report.
