Background information and definitions
Primates are able to tolerate different levels of disturbance. For species that are relatively sensitive to human disturbance, it may be possible to reduce human impact with access restrictions. Reducing access may help to reduce the risk of human introduction of disease, stress, and any physical destruction of primate habitat and resources.
Prohibiting people from accessing primate habitat altogether is discussed under ‘Build fences to keep humans out’.
