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 over 75 attendees participating in Workshop 2018 in Gainesville, Florida.
In consideration of the financial and scheduling difficulties involved for member sanctuaries whose directors and staff travel and attend our workshops, NAPSA began offered Virtual Workshops for a few 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.
Important notice about NAPSA Workshop 2020 #CaregiverStrong:
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and out of concern for the health and safety of the primate sanctuary community, NAPSA will not be holding our Workshop 2020 as expected. Tickets that were purchased have been refunded. We are hoping to reschedule this event in 2022 and look forward to sharing more information when it is available.
