Mission Statement

To support and represent PASA members in their critical work to protect and prevent the extinction of Africa’s primates.


Formed in Entebbe, Uganda in 2000, PASA has grown from a loose collection of primate orphanages into a powerful organization that places a premium on standards of health, welfare, husbandry, education, conservation and accountability.

At present, 23 PASA members in 13 countries that span the breadth and depth of the African continent collectively care for more than 850 chimpanzees, 80 gorillas, 65 bonobos and more than 2,500 other primates.

PASA serves as a source of strength and inspiration for its members, working to facilitate great ape confiscations and transfers, locate funding, raise standards of health, and promote educational outreach. PASA also stages annual workshops for sanctuary managers, veterinary healthcare workers, educators, and keepers, and publishes manuals that cover primate healthcare, conservation education, and sanctuary operations.
