The Belgian Group for Primatology was created to encourage all areas of non-human primatological scientific research, to facilitate cooperation among students and scientists engaged in primate research, and to promote the conservation of all primate species.

The Group is a member of the European Federation for Primatology.

This web site aims to promote the discovery, exchange and diffusion of information regarding non-human primates.

As a member or a visitor, keep up to date with primatology in Belgium via our website !

Anyone engaged in scientific primatology or who is interested in supporting these goals may apply for membership*.

I invite you to become a member of our dynamic Group.
