Right now, PASA is conducting our largest primate rescue ever – and we desperately need your help.
In September, a truck smuggling monkeys from the Democratic Republic of Congo to South Africa was intercepted in Zimbabwe on a route that some investigators believe is commonly used to traffic wildlife before exporting them overseas. For two months, the monkeys have been trapped in cramped cages without proper care at a border checkpoint.
When PASA was alerted to this situation, we immediately began to map a path to safety for the illegally transported animals, some of which are endangered.
I’m excited to tell you that we just received promising news: the 25 monkeys can be transported to PASA member JACK in the DR Congo next week.
If the monkeys didn't go to a sanctuary, they would likely have been forced to live at an appalling zoo or tourist attraction for the rest of their lives.
JACK typically rescues chimpanzees, not monkeys. However, this rescue is so critical for fighting the wildlife trade as well as for the welfare of these animals that JACK has stepped up to provide a home for the monkeys. JACK urgently needs your support to give the monkeys medical treatment and high-quality care.
You can make this possible.
Furthermore, PASA will work with JACK to ensure that as many of the monkeys will be returned to the wild as possible. You can help give these monkeys freedom by contributing now.
Will you save these monkeys and let them return to the forest?
When you donate today, your name will be added to a plaque on the enclosure. Your invaluable impact will never be forgotten.
I don’t want to think about what would happen to the monkeys without a sanctuary to rescue them. Thank you for giving these monkeys a second chance at life.
