Primatologists Dr Alejandro Estrada and Dr Paul A. Garber, based at the National Autonomous University of Mexico and the University of Illinois-Urbana, investigate the social, economic and political factors that have contributed to primate population decline in Brazil, Madagascar, Indonesia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The researchers argue that unless change is immediately implemented, many primate species will go extinct.
