Conservation Programs to Address Systemic Threats

African primates face multiple threats to their survival. So PASA works on the local, regional, and global levels to defend great apes and monkeys.

PASA works to defend great apes and monkeys across Africa.

 

Our chain of global experts addresses animal protection issues on a large scale and produces lasting changes to reduce suffering and abuse.

The threats facing primates in Africa are multi-pronged, thus PASA works in different capacities on both local and global levels to halt the increasing loss of apes and monkeys.

Habitat Conservation

Millions of acres of forest disappear every month, leaving families of monkeys and apes with nowhere else to go. PASA members are leaders in habitat restoration. 

Fighting Wildlife Crime

An estimated 3,000 chimpanzees, gorillas, monkeys, and bonobos are poached from the wild every year to feed a multi-billion dollar illegal trafficking industry.

The Bushmeat Trade

Illegal hunting of apes and monkeys for food is considered the most significant danger to Africa’s primates. For each baby stolen from the wild to be raised for meat, up to ten adults are slaughtered in the process, as close-knit primate families die to protect their offspring.
