Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We found no evidence for the effects of training langurs to deter rhesus macaques on primate populations.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
This intervention involves training langurs (Colobinae) to deter rhesus macaques Macaca mulatta away from farms in an effort to prevent them from crop-raiding.
The use of dogs to chase primates from farms is discussed under ‘Chase primates using dogs’.
