Proyecto Mono Tocón (PMT) is a Peruvian non-governmental non-profit organization, registered as an ONGD by the Peruvian Agency for International Cooperation. It was created in 2007 thanks to the initiative of the French association Le Conservatoire pour la Protection des Primates, that supports several conservation projects for primates around the world.
Currently, the organization is supported by three basic pillars through which it tries to achieve its objective:
Research: The execution of scientific studies on the titi monkey and other threatened fauna and flora. All studies should serve the development of effective conservation measures to safe the San Martin titi monkey and its habitat from extinction.
Conservation Management: The promotion of the creation of conservation areas and to support local communities with the sustainable management of these areas. These areas can be areas where the San Martin titi monkey is already living, but can also be areas with a high degree of biodiversity that are important to obtain or conserve connectivity between isolated populations of San Martin titi monkeys.
Environmental Education and Communication:The implementation of projects that raise awareness of the importance of nature conservation and environmental education projects through which it involves local communities in the protection of natural resources.
