Background information and definitions
As an alternative to protecting natural habitat for primates, restoring damaged habitats or creating new habitat patches may help to maintain/increase primate populations. Habitat restoration or creation is often required by law as a response to mining or other activities that destroy large areas of natural habitats. This intervention may entail planting vegetation, removing invasive species, or creating shelter habitats and sleeping sites for example.
