This website compiles information about scientific research at the Proyecto Primates field site in Yasuní National Park, Ecuador for the curious browser, for students of ecology and behavior, and for primatologists.

Proyecto Primates, established in 1994, is located in a terra firme, neotropical rainforest. Research there has focused on primate ecology, behavior and genetics, and the site has also been used for various botanical and entomological studies.

With the aid and permission of the local indigenous community, the government of Ecuador, and the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Ecuador, the Proyecto Primates field site is an area set aside for long-term conservation.
