    • What criteria do researchers and conservationists use to identify the conservation status of primate populations and species?
    • What are the main threats facing primates today, and how do the combined impacts of these threats uniquely affect primates?
    • What do you think a world without primates would look like? Consider their unique significance and the various roles they play in ecology, human evolutionary and cultural history, and local economies. How would the absence of primates affect ecosystems, other animals, and humans?
    • Considering all the other problems in the world today, should primate conservation be a high priority? What are the arguments to support prioritizing primate conservation?
    • How can you contribute to primate conservation in your everyday life?
