Primate Info Net

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 e-mail lists, Google Groups and other resources, PIN also supports an informal “primate information network” comprised of thousands of individuals around the world working with non-human primates. This is a new site and a work in progress: If you notice that something’s missing, would like to contribute, or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. PIN is a community effort and we’d love to hear from you!

  • Primate Info Net FAQ
  • Visit PIN Classic to view resources from the old website that we are working to update and incorporate into the new site.
  • The original PIN still exists through the Internet Archive Wayback Machine; however, the site is no longer maintained as its original server is no longer supported.
  • For journalists working on stories in primatology, did you know you can submit your query to us with your focus and contact information? We can then forward it to our forum of member primatologists to help you find expert sources for your article or documentary.
