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 2015 attracted over 200 participants to its webinar and video presentations, and the recently released 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.

2017 Virtual Workshop

In the years between our in-person Workshops, we offer an online event. The Virtual Workshop is open all day, every day for ease of access, and now features the ability to chat online and discuss each presentation!

Video topics include:

  • Positive Reinforcement Training
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Disaster Preparedness
  • Geriatric Care
  • Volunteer Programs
  • and more…

Each person accessing the Virtual Workshop must purchase a ticket. Make sure you have registered on Eventbrite. You will be emailed a link from Eventbrite once a ticket has been purchased.

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.

2018 Workshop – Save the Date

 NAPSA’s 2018 Workshop is taking place in Gainesville, Florida. Attend, network and learn from the greats of the primate sanctuary world as we explore topics from the practical to the theoretical – all to ensure the highest quality of care for captive nonhuman primates.

The Workshop will take place on April 25th and 26th at the Holiday Inn Gainesville. There will be a tour of nearby NAPSA members Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary and Center for Great Apes.

More information will be shared in the coming months!
