- We found no evidence for the effects of building fences to keep humans out 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 aims to keep people out of primate habitat with the aid of fences to avoid direct negative impacts on primates due to human activities.
Restricting human access to primate habitat is discussed under ‘Restrict number of people that are allowed access to site’.
