Bill Konstant serves as an advisor to the Margot Marsh Biodiversity Foundation and the Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund and is a member of the IUCN SSC Primate Specialist Group. Primate conservation has been his principal focus since the early 1980s, during which time he has helped develop and support dozens of projects in the New World tropics, Africa, Madagascar and Asia. In addition to his work for a number of international non-governmental organizations, Bill has developed wildlife conservation programs at several North American zoological parks and is a former co-chairman of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Field Conservation Committee. Among his current priorities are updating primate threat assessments for the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, helping to develop a conservation action plan for Africa's endangered red colobus monkeys, and supporting the newly-created African Primatological Society.
