Mission Statement

New England Primate Conservancy is committed to leaving a legacy of hope and tools to create a better tomorrow for all of the Earth's citizens.

Description

Did you know that two thirds of all primate species and subspecies are endangered? All nonhuman primates are threatened by habitat loss caused by human activities. But there is hope. Since the problems are caused by human activity, they are preventable, repairable, and reversible. We can each take small steps in our daily lives, in our daily choices, to create change for the better.

In addition to raising awareness about our environmental impact, humane education strives to develop empathy and tolerance toward all creatures, which facilitates the leap to empathy and tolerance for differences in people. Over 30 years of studies confirm the direct correlation between abuse and neglect of animals and violence against people. By the same token, compassion for our fellow animals can be an indicator of our compassion for each other. When we protect and advocate for our fellow animals, we are part of a much larger solution. Join us. Contribute to the solution.
