NAPSA’s annual workshops have been a highly regarded method of unifying and educating the primate welfare and sanctuary communities. Everything presented at NAPSA Workshops is intended to improve the standards of care for captive primates. The workshops of the past few years have seen steadily increasing attendance, with 87 attendees participating in Workshop 2016 in Tacoma, WA. In consideration of the financial and scheduling difficulties involved for member sanctuaries whose directors and staff travel and attend our workshops, NAPSA began offering Virtual Workshops in the years between our in-person Workshops. Virtual Workshop 2017 includes an improved website design with features granting attendees the chance to continue the conversations and maintain the momentum established through NAPSA’s important gatherings.

Current Workshops:

Workshop 2018
Mission Possible: Monkey Retirement

Workshop 2018 will take place in Gainesville, Florida from April 25th – 28th. This event, focusing on collaboration to encourage monkey retirement to sanctuaries, boasts a packed schedule that includes a drink reception, recognition dinner, two days of presentations and networking, and tours of two different Florida primate sanctuaries.

Over 85 people gathered in September 2016 as part of NAPSA’s fourth Workshop – Our Primate Futures: Planning for the Sanctuaries of Tomorrow. A wonderfully educational and inspirational time was had by all.
