Primate Info Net (PIN) is designed to cover the broad field of primatology, providing original content and links to resources about non-human primates in research, education and conservation. Through Google Groups and other forums, PIN also supports an informal “primate information network” comprised of thousands of individuals around the world working with nonhuman primates. PIN is a community effort and we’d love to hear from you! If you notice that something’s missing, would like to contribute, or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
