Descriptive Entry
This accession consists of records created and maintained by Devra G. Kleiman documenting the administration of the Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation Program (GLTCP). Kleiman served as Scientist, 1972-1982; Acting Assistant Director for Animal Programs, 1982-1983; Assistant Director for Animal Programs, 1983-1984; Assistant Director for Zoological Research and Education, 1984-1985; Assistant Director for Research, 1985-1996; Assistant Director of Zoological Research, 1996-1997, and Senior Scientist, 1997-2001. Originally administered entirely by the National Zoological Park (NZP), Dept. of Zoological Research, the GLTCP focused on the conservation of the golden lion tamarin in its natural habitat and was responsible for the release of captive-born golden lion tamarins into the Reserva Biologica de Poco das Antas (Brazil). In 1992, overall administration of the program was transferred to the Brazilian non-governmental organization, Associacao Mico-Leao-Dourado. Kleiman and several scientific and administrative staff continued to administer NZP's involvement in reintroduction, tracking, and conservation education. Topics documented in this accession include fund raising, conservation program administration training for zoos, personnel administration, studbook administration, policies, intellectual property, observation of released golden lion tamarins, reintroduction logistics, and involvement with international conservation organizations and committees. In addition to golden lion tamarins, records also document the conservation of black lion tamarins, golden headed lion tamarins, and black faced lion tamarins.
Materials include correspondence, memoranda, reports, grant proposals, budget materials, meeting materials, training materials, GLTCP policies, copies of permits, clippings, rights-in-data agreements, position descriptions, and related materials. Some materials were created while the unit was known as the Office of Animal Management (through 1979), the Office of Animal Programs (1979-1984), or the Dept. of Zoological Research and Education (1984-1985). Some materials pre-date Kleiman.
