Le Conservatoire pour la Protection des Primates(Primate Conservation trust) is a non-profit organizationfounded by the French Primate Park “LA VALLEE DES SINGES” to fund conservation programs for wild populations of primates. In 2009,LeConservatoire pour la Protection des Primates initiated the "La Vallée des Singes Conservation Research Grant" to support research that can benefice the conservation of primates worldwide. We will give priority to studies that involve, in their natural habitat, little known and (probable) endangered species. Studies on the distribution and taxonomy of endangered primates are urgently needed, and will receive priority. We give priority to studies conducted by citizens from the country in which the primates are found. The intent is to provide support for research that can be used to formulate and to implement conservation plans for the species studied.
Le Conservatoire pour la Protection des Primates will grant to any qualified person that studies rare and endangered primates and their conservation in their natural habitat. Grants average approximately € 2,500. With this grant we do not intend to support conferences, travel to scientific meetings, salaries or work for sanctuaries.
Proposals are evaluated on competitive basis. Applications are screened by the board of Le Conservatoire pour la Protection des Primates, if necessary with the help of outside reviewers.
