Frequently Asked Questions

Does PASA own the sanctuaries in the Alliance?

No. The member sanctuaries are independently owned and operated. PASA partners with them and provides support and services to help them provide high-quality care for rescued primates and address long-term threats to their survival. 

How do sanctuaries become members of PASA?

Each sanctuary goes through a rigorous accreditation process to join PASA. It is outlined in our Operations Manual. We look at all facets of running a sanctuary, including animal care, enclosure size, financial planning, and staff development.  

How do PASA members get the animals in their care?
PASA members work with local governments, law enforcement, and NGOs to rescue the animals in their care. They come from cruel situations like wildlife trafficking, poaching, or habitat loss. Many were former pets or zoo animals. PASA members do not buy animals.
How many animals do PASA members care for?

PASA members care for over 3,000 animals, including endangered species like chimpanzees, bonobos, and gorillas, and diverse species of monkey. Many care for non-primates as well.
