Amy Schreier is a behavioral ecologist and biological anthropologist who primarily focuses on the behavioral ecology and conservation of non-human primates. After earning a BS from Cornell University, she obtained her PhD in Physical Anthropology from the City University of New York. Her research has taken her across the world, from studying hamadryas baboon society in Ethiopia to howler monkey behavior in Nicaragua. Her current research project examines the influence of forest fragmentation on the behavior, ecology, and population structure of wild mantled howler monkeys, white-faced capuchins, and Central American spider monkeys in Costa Rica. Amy is also a Research Associate at the Denver Zoo in the Department of Animal Welfare and Research. Research projects there focus on a range of animal species, including elephants, gibbons, hornbills, vipers, and mandrills. Students can participate in her research by traveling to Costa Rica and studying monkeys in the wild or conducting behavioral and animal welfare research at the Denver Zoo.
