Primate Society of Great Britain
PSGB, the UK's national primatological society, is dedicated to the advancement of primate research, conservation, and captive care. The Society publishes Primate Eye, three times a year, and celebrates primatology at Spring and Winter conferences each year. I invite you to become a member of our vibrant Society and, as a member or a visitor, keep up to date with primatology in the UK via our website. I encourage you to engage with PSGB in attending to the needs of primates around the world. By joining together in large numbers we can represent the needs of primates and their habitats better and help reverse the trends towards extinction.
