Eastern Africa Primate Diversity and Conservation Program
Primate Research in Eastern Africa
The Eastern Africa Primate Diversity and Conservation Program is a long term research program based in Kenya. The program, founded in 2003, focuses mainly on primate biogeography, diversity, taxonomy and conservation in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. However, the program also looks into the biogeography of other African mammals including the desert warthog, various antilope species and the African golden cat.
