PrimateImages: Natural History Collection

URLs to browse or search the collections

The PrimateImages database is a collection of photographs and information about nonhuman primates. These images were contributed by numerous photographers through the Lawrence Jacobsen Library at the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center, University of Wisconsin in an effort to preserve the visual record nonhuman primate species. This site contains photographs of most known primate species as well as related images such as habitat, maps and food sources.

We welcome contributions of good quality photographs of any nonhuman primate species in a natural setting. As the photographer, you have the option of retaining the full copyright to all images you contribute. Although digital images are preferred, we can also scan slides or prints. All images we receive, whether digital or slides, need to be accompanied by a minimum set of indexing information using a worksheet we will provide.
