Primate Ecology and Genetics Group

The South African Primatology Association

About PEGG

PEGG (Primate Ecology and Genetics Group) was established to provide a forum for individuals interested in primate ecology, behavior and evolution to discuss and share information. We encourage scientific research, education, conservation and conservation oriented management of species of non-human primates found in southern Africa. Membership is open to individuals involved in academics, nature conservation and wildlife management, living or working in southern Africa. Students are actively invited to participate.

Our goals are:

  • Increase educational awareness of primate diversity in southern Africa
  • Encourage research on primates in southern Africa
  • Encourage conservation-oriented management of primate populations in southern Africa
