Rescue & Care for Wildlife
Countless great apes and monkeys are orphaned by bushmeat hunters, kept as illegal pets, or smuggled into the illicit wildlife trade.
As the largest alliance of wildlife centers in Africa, PASA is in a unique position to rescue primates from inhumane and abusive situations and ensure they receive excellent lifelong care.
Save a primate – please donate today. They desperately need you.
How We Do It
PASA member wildlife centers rescue great apes and monkeys, give them veterinary treatment, help them to recover from the trauma then endured, and let them live in large forest enclosures and form natural social groups.
When possible, the animals are reintroduced to their natural habitats after extensive preparation. When reintroduction is not an option, the wildlife centers’ expert staff give lifelong, loving care.
Rescues: PASA enables rescues of primates from cruel situations by working with our worldwide network, local authorities, and our member wildlife centers, and facilitating rescue operations.
Medical care: PASA donates veterinary supplies, equipment, and medications that enable wildlife centers to provide quality health care and the highest standards of animal welfare.
Consultation: PASA’s global network provides training, expert assistance, and emergency care for primates and other wildlife.
Accreditation: PASA assesses and accredits our member wildlife centers to help them provide excellent care and be as effective as possible. Furthermore, PASA accreditation gives centers credibility. We use a pioneering system of operational, veterinary, animal welfare, and conservation standards.
