With 55% of mainland Africa’s and 87% of Madagascar’s primate species threatened, there’s little doubt that primates across the continent are in dire danger of extinction if further concerted and integrated actions are not taken.

With the  birth of the African Primatological Society (APS) which is providing a platform for networking amongst African primatologists to improve African representation at global fora and involvement in primate research and conservation. It is therefore incumbent upon us to establish a vehicle – training and capacity building – through which this network can be sustained and its members well-equipped to have monumental impact locally and globally.

When it comes to conservation in Africa, it has been widely acknowledged that it is Africans themselves who are best placed to promote and sustain effective conservation actions. Plus, much research opportunities and untapped knowledge still lies in the study and understanding of non-human primates and who best to tell the story of African primates to the rest of the world than Africans. Yet, many African primatologists are ill-equipped to take on these real-world responsibilities owing to various factors but chief amongst them are a lack of expertise, under representation and coordination. Although, APS has been established to address some of these issues but to increase the capacity of Africans to be active in APS whilst driving change in the field of primatology, it will require more targeted and deliberate approach – STRATEGICALLY ORGANIZED TRAINING.
