Background information and definitions
This intervention controls primate off-take rates so that the number of individuals that are killed does not exceed the number of individuals that are born to ensure that people can continue to benefit from the resource and that the population survives in the long-term. To do this, respective authorities typically give out a fixed number of hunting permits, beyond which no further hunting is allowed. Obtaining permission to harvest primates may, or may not involve paying money, depending on the type of agreement between the hunter and the wildlife authority.
