While PASA’s initial functions were networking and communication, the Alliance soon took on additional roles such as strengthening the capacity of our member organizations and establishing high standards for their operations. PASA has run projects ranging from crisis response to international law enforcement.
As the largest association of wildlife centers in Africa, the Pan African Sanctuary Alliance includes 22 member organizations in 13 countries across Africa that call on PASA for support on a wide range of issues. PASA advocates for our members on an international scale, provides them with vital support, and works closely with them to raise awareness globally about wildlife conservation issues. Our model of cooperation has been replicated around the world. Today, when primate species are being pushed ever closer to extinction, the need for PASA has never been greater.
