End the Wildlife Trade

When you pledge a monthly gift to PASA of any amount, you’ll unlock an additional $100 from a generous donor, up to a total of $10,000, providing apes and monkeys healthy food and medical care, and join the fight against the commercial wildlife trade.

End the Wildlife Trade


The wildlife trade isn’t just dangerous to humans. It’s one of the most urgent threats to African primates.

COVID-19 has placed this multi-billion dollar global industry under the world’s microscope. While nobody is certain about the disease’s origin, it is widely believed that the outbreak emerged from a market selling a variety of wild animals—alive and dead—for human consumption.

Wild animals shouldn’t be used as pets, as food, or in research and entertainment. That’s why we work with our members, international partners, and African government agencies to fight for an end to this business.

PASA and our members are working to disrupt the trade. You can read our new statement against the commercial wildlife trade here.
