Primate People: Saving Nonhuman Primates through Education, Advocacy, and Sanctuary

U of Utah Press, 2012

Charming, difficult, sensitive--Primate People draws readers into the lives of nonhuman primates though the eyes and voices of activists working around the world to save chimpanzees and owl monkeys, woolly monkeys and gibbons. Woven into this anthology's lucid narratives are stories of how we create the conditions that harm and endanger primates, and what we can do to prevent their ongoing suffering and what we must do to prevent their otherwise fast-approaching extinction.

"Among my worst fears is that I'll wake up one day and wonder where all the animals have gone. Even if we do make immediate changes, numerous animals will perish. But that's where persistence and hard work come in. We don't have to produce a movie, write a book, or found a movement or organization to make a difference. Right now each of us can start making more humane and ethical choices in our daily lives--in the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the products we buy, and the cars we drive, to offer just a few examples. It doesn't take a great deal of effort to make a positive difference."
--From the foreword by Marc Bekoff

 "A significant contribution to the field of critical animal studies...but also to environmental ethics, law, biology, cognitive ethology, philosophy, and the social sciences. A useful and moving book."
--Carol Gigliotti, author of Leonardo's Choice: Genetic Technologies and Animals
