Primate Conservation

Primate Conservation Short Research Paper

Requirement: single spaced, between 1 to 2 pages (1.5 page is ok)

Subject: Japanese macaque conservation report

Purpose: The threats to primates in the modern-day world are many, including habitat loss, anthropogenic climate change, encroachment from human populations, increased pressure from diseases, and human-wildlife conflict. Your report should discuss the conservation status of your primate species according to IUCN (the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species), direct conservation threats, any conservation action plans that are being implemented to protect them, and your views on whether the plan is working and some of your own proposals about what the best methods would be for protecting them based on your knowledge about their biology, behavior, and ecological needs. Your report should also discuss any interactions your primate species has with humans. Your finished report should contain information similar to the following:

Includes at least five scholarly references, including scholarly books, peer-reviewed journal articles, and academic conference proceedings.Do not use Wikipedia, non-scholarly Internet sources, or popular science books or magazines as sources. Use APA citation.

(do not rely on as a source for your report. All sources used for your report must from be from peer-reviewed scientific journals. Websites such as are not peer-reviewed and therefore should not be used as a reference or cited. )

About japanese macaque’s taxonomic and ecological background is attached, may be helpful.

please cite properly and it must be scholarly reference, can relate Japanese macaque’s biological background to its conservation.

and you could get more information about threats and conservation from the link above

Answer preview

In the modern-day world, primates have been facing extreme threats such as habitat loss, anthropogenic climate change, increased diseases, human-wildlife conflict, and invasions from human beings. On a specific note, the Japanese Macaque, which includes two subspecies, namely the Macaca fuscata fuscata as well as the Macaca fuscata yakui, are among the primates experiencing a decline (Muroyama, & Yamada, 2010). The Japanese Macaque, also known as the old-world monkeys, are found in Japan. They are also identified as the snow monkey since some of them live in cold climatic regions know to have snow flow for months. A report regarding the conservation status of the Japanese Macaque will establish the direct threats facing the primates, conservation plan being implemented, and recommendations that could be put in place.
