Leaders of the Movement to Save Great Apes and Mon

Forging a Stronger Conservation Community

Dear friends,

PASA is busy planning our 18th annual conference for the leaders of our member wildlife centers. Many of them live at sanctuaries that are deep in the African bush, without reliable internet, phones, or even electricity. Saying they’re isolated is an understatement.

They’ve repeatedly said that PASA’s Strategic Development Conference is one of the most valuable ways we empower them. It’s the only time each year that they get together with a group of people who face the same extraordinary challenges that they do and who work to achieve the same goals – saving Africa’s primates and their habitat from disappearing forever.  


PASA’s next conference will be in Zambia in September. PASA members told us the most important topics are strategic planning and financial management – not the most exciting, but absolutely essential for running a sustainable, effective organization.

Many of the leaders of PASA member organizations are lifelong volunteers and don’t take a salary. Almost none of the organizations have budgets for international travel. The conference will only be possible if you help to cover the necessary costs for the sanctuary leaders to attend.
 
Engaging African Communities

For the first time ever, the conference will occur side-by-side with a workshop for people who manage education programs and community development projects. PASA members have decades of experience living alongside local communities and running conservation programs. They’re ideally positioned to use public awareness to convince communities to stop illegally hunting wild animals, selling baby apes and monkeys as pets, and destroying habitat. They also give job training that provides sustainable alternatives.

The combination of the conference and the workshop makes this PASA’s largest event ever. You can make it possible.
 
Cultivating African Leaders

Hiring and cultivating future leaders is a daunting challenge for many PASA member organizations, especially those that work in very remote areas or unstable countries. To address this, PASA launched the Leadership Development Program which enables promising African management staff to come to the Strategic Development Conference and join PASA’s global network.

Last year, Raymond of Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue was the first participant in the program.

Based on its success, we’re expanding it to more rising stars.

Will you enable African staff to come to the conference and become future leaders?

Very best wishes,

Gregg Tully
