Abstract

Habitats of human populations and wildlife overlap, creating opportunities for unavoidable interactions. Saguinus bicolor, an endemic primate in the Manaus region, faces as main threats, the destruction and fragmentation of the forest. With the disorderly advance of the city, there were fragments forest where bare-faced tamarins instigated by the dispute by space and food resource may be interacting with humans. Aiming to provide subsidies for the balanced coexistence between both, this study investigated the interactive behavior of residents regarding the presence of bare-faced tamarins. Semi-structured interviews were applied to 84 residents of seven forest fragments. The results show that the interactions are: cooperation, affectivity, neutrality, taming and competition. These interactions work as an indication of what must be worked in areas of sympathy between humans and bare-faced tamarins in terms of implementation and monitoring of environmental education projects.
