The International Cryptozoology Museum and International Cryptozoology Society at the annual International Cryptozoology Conference in Portland, Maine, on September 1, 2018, announced the Cryptozoologist of the Year 2018 as Anna Nekaris, Ph. D.

In the realm of enlightened cryptozoology, Anna Nekaris stands out as a shining example of a primatologist interested identifying new species and examining evidence for hidden species. Indeed, among her colleagues, she is know as “the Champion of Cryptic Primates” for her work with slow and slender lories, and galagos. As the coauthor of several papers on new species on these primates, she has blazed the trail of remarkable (although sometimes ignored) discoveries of (so-called lesser) primates.

Not sure but she seems a nice person.  Concerned about the illegal trafficking of mammals.

I see that she is wearing gloves indicating that the loris she holds has not been "defanged." The ones that go to the pet trade are often "defanged" (usually teeth ground down) so that they cannot bite their owners. This "defanging" makes them unable to reenter the wilds. Here is a read on the slow loris and comments that they are unlikely to be venomous - at least to humans.
