Providing evidence to improve practice

Action: Certify mines and market their products as ‘primate friendly’ (e.g. ape-friendly cellular phones) Primate Conservation

Key messages

  • We found no evidence for the effects of certifying mines and marketing their products as ‘primate friendly’ 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.
