PRIMADAPTION WORKSHOP: TRAINING AND ENRICHMENT THAT IS CONSTANTLY EVOLVING TO MEET THE REALISTIC NEEDS OF NON-HUMAN PRIMATES IN LABORATORY SETTINGS
May 7, 2012 - May 10, 2012
Location:Panther Tracks Learning Center, Immokalee, FL
Sponsor:Primate Products
Focus:Primadaption is a training and enrichment concept based on the idea that traditional or formal methods of training and enrichment for captive NHP are not always compatible with the resources that are available at many facilities, and therefore, it is necessary to tweak those methods so that it is possible to achieve the desired results within the set means. The ultimate goal is to create a realistic program that has room to change and grow, but is capable of being easily instituted at the specified facility.
Registration Fee:$1250 (double occupancy room); $1450 (single occupancy room)

INTERNATIONAL PRIMATOLOGICAL SOCIETY XXIV CONGRESS
August 13, 2012 - August 17, 2012
Location:Cancun, Mexico
Sponsor:International Primatological Society
Focus:Primatology's Legacy and Future Challenges: This theme was selected since even after more than three centuries of Primatological research, new challenges continue to appear, among which we can find the conservation of species. Considering this, senior primatologists must now reflect on how these challenges can be clearly established and approached, and on how, with their experiences, they can encourage new generations of international primatologists in continuing to protect and study our closest relatives.
