About This Project

This study will document locations of 7 monkey species in un-surveyed areas across Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea, and determine how hunting is affecting their overall distribution and relative densities. A growing commercial demand for bushmeat has greatly threatened the viability of their populations.

Increased knowledge of the locations of these monkeys are needed for the wildlife authority to make conservation management decisions on some of its most vulnerable species to gun-hunting.
