In this installment of The PrimateCast, we asked students of Kyoto University's Primate Research Institute to select their favorite moments from the first year and a half plus of the podcast. We then interviewed each student, asking them to tell us about their research interests, how they got into the field of primate research and why they made their respective podcast selections. Student choices could be broadly broken down into conservation- and research-related interview segments, so we are presenting these episodes in a two-part series focusing on these concepts.
In Part I, we focus on conservation-related issues surrounding wild primates. In addition to learning a little bit about our students, you'll hear clips from past interviews with Jane Goodall, Steve Ross, Tomoaki Nishihara and Janet Nackoney, discussing issues such as the need for young researchers to engage in conservation initiatives, public perceptions of wild chimpanzee conservation status, dealing with civil unrest and war in source countries and the importance of capacity building and involving local communities in conservation and research activities.
