Association of Indian Primatologists is a community of Indian students, researchers, conservationists, and enthusiasts keen on promoting Indian primates, primatology, and conservation initiatives to a larger audience, and enabling greater cooperation between individuals and agencies working towards a common goal of primate welfare in India.
We seek to encourage early career researchers to come forward and interact with their peers and prominent senior researchers in the field.
We also intend to promote better communication among primatologists across India by providing platforms for the efficient exchange of ideas and resources. Through our initiatives, we also seek to bridge the gap between research and policy for the effective conservation of Indian primates.
