60% of Primate Species Now Face Extinction

By Gregg Tully, PASA | Executive Director

Tragically, the plight of Africa’s chimpanzees, gorillas, monkeys, and bonobos is more desperate than ever.
• Wildlife trafficking is the fourth largest criminal enterprise in the world, behind drugs, counterfeiting, and human trafficking.
• Recent research found that about 60% of primate species are now threatened with extinction, and 75% are in decline.
• It's expected that within 13 years, 90% of great ape habitat will be damaged in some way by humans.

However, the news isn’t all bleak. Because of your support, the 22 organizations that are members of PASA are leading an effort throughout Africa to protect the remaining wild primates as well as their rapidly disappearing habitat. They have spent decades working year-round in Africa to protect wildlife, and have developed strong collaborative relationships with government agencies and local communities. They use these relationships to create long-term changes that are helping to save our closest relatives from extinction.

• 13 PASA member organizations regularly send forest patrols into crucial wildlife habitat in 10 African countries. These ecoguards put their lives on the line to arrest smugglers and remove cruel traps and snares.
• PASA members in 7 countries have successfully worked with governments to create new national parks and other protected areas.
• Since lack of law enforcement is a widespread problem in Africa, 17 PASA member organizations in 13 countries are lobbying for better protection of wild primates and their habitat. 9 organizations have successfully backed stronger habitat protection laws.
• 15 PASA member wildlife centers are conducting reforestation projects in wildlife habitat.

We can’t stand by while some of the most intelligent species on earth are hunted and trafficked to extinction.

PASA member wildlife centers are leading an effort to save numerous primate species from disappearing forever. You can join the movement – please donate now.

We don’t have any time to spare. Without your support, I worry that soon it will be too late to save chimpanzees, gorillas, bonobos, and many monkey species from extinction.

Protecting primates together,

PS: We urgently need support we can depend on to expand our programs. Please give today.
