Welcome to the Primate and Predator Project. We are based at Lajuma Research Centre in the Soutpansberg Mountains, Limpopo Province, South Africa.
Our research is structured around three key themes:
(i) To assess the role of mountainous regions in biodiversity conservation
(ii) The behavioural ecology of predator-prey interactions focussing on diurnal primates and their predators as a model system
(iii) Evaluating the nature and extent of human-wildlife conflict within the Soutpansberg Mountains
The project is supported by Durham University and the Earthwatch Institute. To find out more about the Earthwatch project please click here.
