Ape-solutely Fabulous - Fostering Human-Primate Coexistence

The IPS-MPS '23 - The Joint Meeting of the International Primatological Society (IPS) and the Malaysian Primatological Society (MPS), was recently held in Kuching, and the conference was themed "Primates and People: A New Horizon”. Malaysia is a highly primate diverse country with rich natural habitats but currently, most of the primates species in Malaysia are regarded as threatened. We discuss why this is the case, and also some of the major outcomes of this international conference that are seeking solutions to protect primates, with the conference co-organisers from the Malaysian Primatological Society (MPS) Dr Aini Hasanah binti Abd Mutalib (President of MPS, and Research Officer at the Institute of Tropical Biodiversity and Sustainable Development, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu), Dr Nadine Ruppert (Vice-President of MPS, and Senior Lecturer at the School of Biological Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia) and Dr Yap Jo Leen (Assistant Secretary General of MPS, and Head of the Langur Project Penang).
