Action for Primates
Action for Primates is a UK-based project that advocates globally on behalf of non-human primates. Despite their status as our closest living biological relatives, non-human primates face many threats and continue to suffer and be exploited by people around the world, whether in their native habitat, in trade and transportation, in research and toxicity testing laboratories, in private homes, in zoos, as entertainment, on social media, or as food and body parts.
Action for Primates exists to raise awareness and encourage people to take action on behalf of primates everywhere.
Please join us on this important mission, by supporting our action alerts and following us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
We use the term primates to refer to non-human primates. Further, although we are in principle opposed to any primate being held in captivity, we know that some individuals who are rescued from private homes, laboratories, zoos and other captive situations cannot be rehabilitated and returned to their natural habitat. We support these individuals being cared for by genuine sanctuaries, in as close to natural conditions as feasible for their entire lives, and not being exploited in any way.
Action for Primates recognises that all animals, not just non-human primates, deserve respect and protection from harm by people.
