Over half of all primate species are now threatened with extinction, yet primates are essential to the health of the forests in which they live. These are the same forests that protect the planet from the effects of climate change – their future is our future.
We’re an animal charity that’s passionate about wild animal welfare and Compassionate Conservation. we work tirelessly to stop the exploitation and suffering of individual animals living in captivity or in the wild.
Our Vision and Mission
Our vision is a co-existent future where humans no longer exploit wild animals.
We work to ensure that all wild animals, whether living in captivity or in the wild, are treated with compassion and respect and are able to live their lives according to their needs.
As a leading wildlife charity, we oppose the exploitation of wild animals in captivity and campaign to keep them where they belong – in the wild.
We promote Compassionate Conservation to enhance the survival of threatened species in the wild and protect natural habitats while respecting the needs and safeguarding the welfare of individual animals.
We seek to have a positive impact on animals in the wild and protect their ecosystems in perpetuity, for their own intrinsic value and for the critical roles they play within the natural world.
From the start, we’ve campaigned for a future where animals and people can co-exist and where threatened and endangered species are protected for generations to come.
