Action: Avoid contact between wild primates and human-raised primates
Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We found no evidence for the effects of avoiding contact between wild primates and human-raised primates 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.
To minimize the risk of disease transmission, this intervention aims to avoid contact between wild primates and human-raised primates, the latter of which may act as carriers for human diseases that may spread to wild primate populations.
