We still know very little about the behaviour of San Martin titi monkeys. The few studies that have been conducted were done on an isolated family or in a small isolated forest patch. Although the information obtained is very valuable, it needs to be compared with studies from larger areas and other habitats. We know that titi monkeys can live in humid forest, but they also survive in deciduous dry forest. Are there differences in behaviour and diet between the different habitats? How do titi monkeys survive in a dry forest in periods of low food availability? There are also some areas of primary forest, where titi monkeys are absent. Why do they avoid this forest, but do live in the degraded forest fragments around the area? Why is the primary forest no suitable habitat? If titi monkeys only survive in unviable populations in forest fragments, how should we manage the population?

We want to invite other researchers to join us in our struggle to protect the San Martin titi monkeys. Much research is needed, and Proyecto Mono Tocón is not able to do this.

Proyecto Mono Tocón can help other (foreign) researchers with permits and logistics.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you want to help us studying the San Martin titi monkey.
