End the Keeping of Primates as Pets

The UK parliament’s Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee is considering whether or not to recommend a ban on the private keeping of non-human primates.

We believe the complex social, psychological and physical needs of these highly intelligent and complex animals cannot be met in a home environment and that they inevitably suffer both mentally and physically as a result. Monkeys and other primates belong in the wild, not in our homes.

Please act to protect these animals, say no to the keeping of primates as pets.

To the UK government:

Primates Belong in the Wild – End the Keeping of Primates as Pets.

I support a ban on the private keeping of non-human primates in the UK and on the trade to supply private keeping.

Primates belong in the wild, not in our homes.
