Dealing with stress: for well-being and conservation

Providing a suitable and stress-free condition for animals is the least we can do as human beings. My research involves investigation of hormonal changes in nonhuman primates as a tool to monitor their reproductive fitness and stress levels. PWS has allowed me to see many habitats of wild primates that can be used as a model to improve conditions of captivity. My goal is to ensure the physiological well-being of nonhuman primates and work for conservation of their natural environment.
