Primate Images: Apes

Jacobsen Library has built a collection of over 6500 natural history images depicting hundreds of nonhuman primate species. A selection of the "better" images is available here.

We're always interested in donations of high quality images of nonhuman primates, especially for species that are under-represented in our collection. Please contact Joseph Kemnitz at for more information.
