OUR MISSION

Chimpanzees In Need

32 chimpanzees need relocation from a closed rescue facility. NAPSA has found them new homes at four sanctuaries, some of whom have already begun welcoming in these needy chimps!

We need your help now to pay for the chimpanzees’ current care and the new housing being built. Can we count on you to chip in towards this effort?

Retire Your Primate

Are you seeking sanctuary placement for a primate?

NAPSA member sanctuaries are located throughout North America and provide lifetime care for monkeys and apes retired from entertainment, laboratory research, and private ownership.

Advocacy

Since its inception, NAPSA has remained committed to using the united voice of its members to defend and enhance the welfare of captive primates. NAPSA has developed Position Statements and Educational Resources on a growing number of topics relevant to primate exploitation and primate welfare in the hopes of initiating and supporting change.

Workshops

NAPSA Workshop 2020, which was set to take place in June 2020 in San Diego, was regretfully cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. When it is safe to do so, we look forward to uniting the primate sanctuary community at our next event.

Primate sanctuaries are more in demand than ever before. As animals are retired from captive situations, exact data about NAPSA member sanctuaries and their residents constantly change.
Over 800 nonhuman primates live at NAPSA member sanctuaries.
