An Introduction to Primate Conservation

In this chapter, the evidence-based approach to conservation (EBC) is presented, in which scientific evidence is used to determine the effectiveness of conservation actions and to inform decision making. The chapter is divided into three parts. In the first part, the origins and importance of the EBC are introduced, and how it has been used to objectively assess the success of conservation activities. In the second part, the methodological aspects of the approach are described. The approach is illustrated step-by-step using an hypothetical example of a threatened primate species. A couple of recent studies of conservation activities are discussed; one large-scale and one with local focus, where the approach has been used. Finally, in the third part, how to improve the success of conservation activities such as law enforcement, tourism, and research is covered.
