Background information and definitions
Primates may cause hazards to humans and their property in residential areas. For example, they may enter private homes, steal food, and cause damage to properties. Primates that live in/near residential areas may also injure people and represent a health hazard, as they can transmit various diseases to humans and vice versa. In an effort to protect both primates and humans, primates may be relocated to areas that are less densely populated by humans, or natural areas. This intervention may be implemented before the building of the residential area or at a later stage in response to primates invading an existing residential area.
