Health evaluation of translocated free‐ranging primates in French Guiana

Abstract: Among over 40 mammal species threatened by the filling of a hydroelectric dam reservoir in French Guiana, three species of primates have been translocated, comprising 124 red howler monkeys, six white-faced sakis, and 95 golden-handed tamarins. Health status of the animals was evaluated by direct physical examination and by hematological, biochemical, virological, and parasitological surveys of collected blood. The physical condition of the howlers was slightly worse toward the end of the capture period, but t… Show more

“…Several researchers have investigated the prevalence of specific diseases within and across species, e.g., malaria (Davies et al 1991;Nunn and Heymann 2005), but baseline data on the general health parameters of wild individuals are known for relatively few species: Propithecus tattersalli (Garell and Meyers 1995), Ateles paniscus chamek (Karesh et al 1998), Aloutta seniculus (Vie et al 1998), Pithecia pithecia and Saguinus midas (de Thoisy et al 2001), Lemur catta (Dutton et al 2003), Varecia variegata and V. rubra (Junge and Louis 2005b), Propithecus verreauxi deckeni and Eulemur fulvus rufus (Junge and Louis 2005a), and E. macaco macaco (Junge and Louis 2007).…”

“…The classical HI and MNT methodologies used during this investigation are based on the conventional serologic diagnosis of fl avivirus due to the presence of virus-specifi c antibodies in the serum. Similar serological strategies have been used to detect SLEV in primates 23 , white-tailed deer 19,29 , livestock 11 , mules 19 , and horses 8,10,11,17,18 . The importance of these results lies primarily in the observation of SLEV circulation in a completely new habitat within Brazil, considering that most cases of SLEV have been described within the Amazon region 4,[20][21][22] .…”

“…Based on the earliest fossil record of their host group, an estimated date for the origin of hookworms would be in the Palaeocene [15]. Again, there is a good possibility that humans originally acquired infections from apes and simians since N. americanus has been found in chimpanzees [150] and A. duodenale infects Bonoboas [151] and Howler monkeys [146].…”
