    About This Project

    The pied tamarin is a very sensitive and critically endangered primate species. With only a small population left in the wild, maintaining a healthy captive population is a vital conservation strategy. However, in captivity pied tamarins tend to struggle more than other species of tamarin, and this can lead to health problems.

    Why is this? My study will focus on the different noises they experience in captive environments and investigate if and how sounds affect them.
