In the absence of any clear consensus among philosophers about the existence or identification of relevant differences between the moral status of humans and nonhumans (Leahy, 1991; Brinkman, 2001), a perspective that I personally find useful and appealing is based on Albert Schweitzer’s notion of a “reverence for life” (Monamy, 2000).

In the field, my research has involved habituation and observation, as well as trap, mark, and release, radio tracking, and sedation of animals. I have both managed a small colony of galagos for 20 years that involved experimental and observational studies and worked closely on observational studies conducted by the Primate Foundation of Arizona, a federally funded chimpanzee research institution. My view of the care of captive primates has been shaped by having experienced and appreciated them in the wild (Janson, 1994; Snowdon, 1994).
