Summary

Primates are often illegally smuggled to be sold as pets and many end up living in isolation. Globally many trafficked wild animals are confiscated by government authorities, which puts pressure on captive facilities to take in animals and many are not equipped to meet their welfare needs, causing further suffering. Wild Welfare provides support to captive facilities sharing skills and species-specific knowledge to help ensure that individual primates are not only able to survive but thrive.

Challenge

Primates are one of the most intelligent and diverse groups of animals, living in a range of habitats in highly complex social groups. Sadly, many are snatched from the wild and smuggled across international borders to be sold as pets and end up living in isolation. This is not only devastating to their welfare but also contributes to the serious decline of wild populations. Many captive facilities which take in confiscated primates are not equipped to meet their complex welfare needs.

Solution

We support and empower animal care staff providing training and advice, including species-specific knowledge, veterinary care, diet and nutrition, bespoke enclosure design and enrichment programmes. Through conducting welfare assessments we identify a plan of action to immediately improve welfare standards and care for individual primates in need of help. We also support campaigns to improve primate welfare legislation and help rehome individual animals where there are no suitable alternatives.

Long-Term Impact

With your support, we can continue improving the welfare of hundreds of captive primates and other wild animals worldwide, by providing long-term support to animal care staff and helping end animal suffering by rehoming individual primates in need. We drive the improvement of welfare standards and facilitate positive change, ensuring all wild animals living in captivity not only survive but thrive.
