What is the Primate Society of Great Britain?

The Primate Society of Great Britain (PSGB) is a UK learned society (Registered Charity No. 290185) affiliated to the International Primatological Society (IPS) and the European Federation for Primatology (EFP).

PSGB was founded in 1967 to promote research into all aspects of primate biology, conservation and management. If you would like to consult the PSGB archives or donate PSGB documents or memorabilia to them, please contact the Society Archivist, Dr Mary Blanchard, University of Liverpool ([email protected]). 

The Society is very strong scientifically and holds regular scientific meetings. Its Conservation, Captive Care and Research Sub-Committees award grants. It also awards several medals to mark individual contributions to primatology.
