Anthropology at PSU
A partnership with the Lemur Conservation Foundation expands primatology and primate conservation as research and training enterprises through a field methods course taught at the Foundation's Reserve. The program is seeding the discipline with new talent, training students for the rigors and rewards of studying primates in the wild and contributing to their conservation. At a time when biodiversity loss is proceeding at a stupendous rate, the need to promote fieldwork in primatology has never been greater. There are forty-two graduates of the field school to date, many of them now entering the profession - as interns at the Reserve, as field assistants in primate source countries, and as Ph.D. students (in biological anthropology or related fields).
