The Primate Partnership Fund

Over half of the world’s monkeys, apes and prosimians are at risk of extinction and that number is growing each year. The dramatically escalating threats come primarily from human activities such as land degradation, deforestation and hunting. Primate Partnerships Fund is founded in the belief that a key factor in endangered primate conservation is engaging the people who live closest to them in ensuring their survival. Local communities are integral to the success of conservation and need to have ownership and responsibility for that success. While partnerships are not new, understanding how they work and what is most successful is an ongoing process. PPF awards small grants of between $1000 and $5000 to support local capacity building for endangered primate conservation and education in primate habitat countries.

Primate Partnership Fund Grants 

Priority is given to projects that promote conservation of endangered primates in Africa, Madagascar, and Southeast Asia. Projects that support community engagement in primate conservation whether through education programs, primate monitoring, or economic initiatives such as community-based ecotourism are supported.

Research projects that can lay the ground work and inform better partnerships and conservation initiatives are also eligible. These may include research into land management and resource use, economic, social science and cultural studies or other issues of primate/people co-existence. Projects that support development of field based primate specialists in a primate habitat country are encouraged.

Plans for the publication and dissemination of project results to the public and specialists should be included. Applicants for grants of less than $2500 may apply for a follow up grant in a subsequent year. Primate Partnership Fund grants support project costs not including indirect costs, permanent equipment, conferences and international travel. At this time grants can only be made to projects associated with US non-profit organizations, colleges or universities. Unsolicited grant applications are not currently accepted.

Species diversity ensures ecosystem resilience, giving ecological communities the scope they need to withstand stress.

About 90 percent of primates — the group that contains monkeys, lemurs, lorids, galagos, tarsiers, and apes — live in tropical forests, which are fast disappearing. Help us to help them.
