I am a passionate conservationist with an undergraduate background in botany and zoology and currently pursuing an MSc in Primate Conservation at Oxford Brookes University. I am much interest in human-wildlife conflicts and primates conservation, particularly nocturnal primates and I am the current district vermin control officer of Kalangala district in Uganda (East Africa). I also worked as a Biodiversity officer at the Youth Association for Rural Development (YARD) where I was responsible for community conservation capacity building and indigenous tree growing. I am here to share knowledge and ideas about conservation and contribute to the conservation of primates and their habitats.

Welcome to WildHub, Julius! I'd love to hear more about what you've learned about botany in primate habitats.

Welcome to WildHub Julius! I don't know if your work includes the capture and release of primates. If so, you might be interested in joing the Primate Capture, Release, and Alternatives discussion room on WildHub. The room is a project of the International Primatological Society and it's a place to share best practices for capture, ideas about alternatives to capture, seek help with planning captures, and discuss challenges encountered when capturing and releasing wild primates. It's a private room, so there is a very short form to complete. If you are interested let me know and I will send you a link to the form.

Hello Elena, it is one of the roles I am supposed to do especially with problematic animals but unfortunately, there are budget constraints for the procurement of equipment in the department and much work has been done on training community members to mitigate human-wildlife conflicts. It would be a great opportunity to join a forum where people have vast experience.

Hi Julius, a warm welcome to WildHub, great to have you join us! 

Which lessons learned could you share on nocturnal primates that you think could benefit other professionals working in this area? It would be useful to learn more from you and your work. 

Perhaps of interest to you are our WildHub socials which is an informal and easy-going way to network with other members. Upcoming socials are advertised here. Let us know if you have any questions.

Hello Chrissy, I am much interested in the genus perodicticus (pottos). And currently working on my research proposals for their taxonomy and another on captive behaviours if all goes well I will be glad  to share with you the results incase you have interest in pottos.
