Action: Use 'set-aside' areas of natural habitat for primate protection within mining area
Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We found no evidence for the effects of using ‘set-aside’ areas of natural habitat for primate protection within mining areas 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.
Mining firms may establish ‘no-go areas’ within their concession where no mining activities will take place and which primates can use as refuges.
