We participate in research projects in the fields of ethology and primatology to evaluate and improve the conditions and welfare of the animals housed in the center. Also, in collaboration with the IPHES (Institute of Human Paleoecology and Social Evolution) we develop studies on the evolutionary roots of our behavior through primatological models of human evolution.
All the research we carry out is of ethological type, non-invasive and respecting the international legal and ethical guidelines.
