Join Us

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. 

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.

We're back!
