NAPSA WORKSHOP 2020 #CAREGIVERSTRONG. Attend, network and learn from primate and sanctuary experts as we explore topics from the practical to the theoretical – all to ensure the highest quality of care for captive nonhuman primates. This time around, we are focusing on the needs and strengths of caregivers, who are the true backbone of primate sanctuaries!
