The purpose of this project is to develop a series of humane, non-lethal, techniques to reduce farmer-primate conflict at the farm-forest interface, and improve animal welfare through encouraging use of humane, non-lethal mitigation techniques instead of wire snares, poison bait and man traps, that are commonly used presently. More specifically we will:
(ii) Identify areas where crop protection can be enhanced, e.g. farmers’ ability to detect primates on their farms, and/or deterrence techniques used.
(iii) Develop and field test humane, non-lethal, tools with farmers to reduce crop damage by primates.
(iv) Run workshops with local farmers to demonstrate new or improved crop protection techniques.
