Challenge

Hunting and habitat destruction take a huge toll on Africa's primates. Nearly 40% of all African primates are threatened with extinction. Primates are sold as bush meat, and young animals are sold in the illegal pet trade. These babies are the byproducts of bush meat - too small to eat, after their families are killed they are sold as pets. All gorillas, chimpanzees and bonobos are ENDANGERED or CRITICALLY ENDANGERED, and unless human behaviors change they may go extinct in our lifetime.

Solution

PASA members rescue and rehabilitate over 3,400 primates and wildlife. The Emergency Rescue Fund allows sanctuaries to act immediately to rescue orphaned and injured chimps, gorillas, bonobos, and monkeys. Our members also address root causes of threats to primates, and engages and empowers local communities to protect wild primates and forests.

Long-Term Impact

PASA members not only rescue primates from the illegal wildlife trade, they also develop sustainable livelihood projects to give community residents a viable option to habitat destruction, or hunting and selling wildlife. Our education programs and trainings empower new conservation leaders in Africa. Working with local communities, PASA addresses the illegal wildlife trade, rehabilitates orphaned and injured animals, and nurtures the next generation of African conservation leadership.
