Gastrointestinal Parasites in Primates 2004

With more tourists traveling to southern Peru to view the natural forests and wildlife, conservationists worry that humans encroaching on fragile ecosystems could introduce an influx of diseases that are transferred from humans to the animals in the area. Because this threat has already been well documented in Africa, particularly among the gorilla populations, conservations want to know more about how big of a threat inter-species disease transfers are in southern Peru. The focus of their studies centers on gastrointestinal parasites, which pose a big threat to the wellness of the animals in the area, as well as infected humans.
