Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Tracie McKinney is a Senior Lecturer in Biological Anthropology at the University of South Wales and a member of the Earth, Ecology and Environment Research Group.

Dr McKinney is a member of the IUCN Primate Specialist Group Section for Human-Primate Interactions, where she works to ensure that our research and policies around primates include the human dimension.

Tracie is particularly interested in the relationships people have with other animals, how animals respond to changing environments, and ways to support wildlife conservation in human-dominated landscapes.

She is currently working with collaborators in Costa Rica to install aerial bridges to reduce road fatalities for the Vulnerable mantled howler monkey.

Dr McKinney has co-edited 'Primates in Anthropogenic Landscapes. Developments in Primatology: Progress and Prospects' (2022) which argues that species which thrive in human-altered environments can teach us a lot about the adaptability of wildlife.
