Dr. Anna Nekaris - Is Social Media Saving or Enslaving the Slow Loris?

Anna Nekaris is Professor in Primate Conservation and Anthropology at Oxford Brookes University, and course tutor of their world-reknowned MSc in Primate Conservation programme

She previously conducted long-term studies of Indian and Sri Lankan slender lorises and studied the community ecology of Sri Lanka's rainforest primates, including toque macaques and purple-faced langurs. In particular she has examined the effects of fragmentation on populations throughout Sri Lanka's sparse remaining rainforests.  Her current research project looks at the diversity of Asian slow lorises, both in the field and using museum specimens.
