A newly introduced bill called the #CaptivePrimateSafetyAct  (CPSA), that’s supported by Animal Welfare Institute (@awionline ), addresses the cruel and dangerous problem of pet primate ownership in the #UnitedStates . Sponsored by Reps. @repblumenauer (D-OR) and @repbrianfitz (R-PA), this bill would amend the #LaceyAct to prohibit interstate commerce in nonhuman primates (including #apes , #monkeys , #lemurs , and #lorises ) for the exotic #pettrade .🙏🐵 - “The suffering pet primates endure is alarming,” said Cathy Liss, President of AWI in a statement. “They are often forcibly removed from their mothers soon after birth, spend their lives isolated in small cages and endure unnecessary, painful procedures such as tooth extraction. The Captive Primate Safety Act is urgently needed to prevent these animals from entering the inhumane interstate pet trade.” - Conservative estimates suggest that there are at least 15,000 primates kept as pets in the United States. 💔🦍🐵🚫 #EndThePetTrade - - READ MORE: 🌍👉WorldAnimalNews.com @worldanimalnews_ @peace_4animals #WorldAnimalNews

Please, consider donating to help #batconservation or symbolicly adopting a bat from bat world sanctuary! Afraid of bats? Think bats are nasty? Research why bats are important to earth! Discover truths from myths! Some cool things that @batworldsanctuary does when you adopt a bat is send you photos of the bat, the bat's story (reason for arrival at the sanctuary), and fun facts about the breed of bat you adopted! #adoptabat #symbolicadoption #batworldsanctuary #batworld #endangeredspecies #batsarecute #batsarenotpets #batsaredeserving #batsarecool #savethebats #whitenosesyndrom #destroyedhabitat #endthepettrade #tinkerbell #peekaboo #ilovebats
I was so touched to finally see the Jane @janegoodallinst documentary. What moved me most were her less than idealistic observations of the chimps, the deep commitment to letting them be portrayed and honored for all that they are... which doesn’t fit into the little benevolent box we often want wild animals to be in. - Truly an extraordinary visual, historical and scientific journey. - To think how much chimps continue to suffer and decline in numbers due to deforestation, the bush meat trade and illegal pet trade needs to be rectified. - The great apes (and many more creatures than we realize) are more than sentient ... they are completely emotional, feeling things even more deeply than us. Let’s keep them safe to the best of our ability. - #chimpanzee #janegoodall #animalkingdom #wildlifesanctuary #wildlifeconservation #wildlife #janegoodall #janegoodallinstitute #janegoodallbiopic #endthepettrade #stopthepettrade #keepanimalssafe #keepanimalswild #nature #conservation #thetimeisnow #illegalanimaltrade #illegalwildlifetrade
Although he looks like a pet, he isn’t. Peccaries are wild animals. #wildtracksbelize #endthepettrade
Sully is always ready to go when he knows it's time to come inside 😝 🐢💚 - Fortunately for Sully he has found a permanent home here at the Rescue, but was once an "unwanted" pet. Tortoises like him need lots of special care: very specific dietary needs, large outdoor & indoor enclosures and aside from that can live from 80 to over 100 years old in some cases! - Please always consider ADOPTING over buying a pet and make sure to do research to see if you can handle all of the animals needs first 😊👍 - #adoptdontshop #animalrights #endthepettrade #tortoiserescue #loveall #helpall #adoption #rescue #makeadifference #supportrescues #animalrescue #helpanimals #petadoption

Repost @bornfreefoundation with @insta.save.repost • • • The #UK #exotic #pet trade deprives tiny #monkeys of the life they deserve… Here on our doorstep, at least 5,000 #monkeys and #lemurs are kept as #pets , all victims of the UK’s cruel ‘#primate#trade . We urgently need your support to help them: http://bit.ly/MonkeyAppeal Our friends, Wild Futures, want to create a specialised #marmoset facility. Please, will you help give sanctuary and a forever home to little monkeys in need? Your gift today could literally transform their lives. Together let’s give them the quality of life they so truly deserve: http://bit.ly/MonkeyRescue We’re also calling for a ban on the keeping and trading of #primates as pets.

Spending my days being mum to this little guy and the rest of his group and getting back to what make me truly happy 🐒 #primaterehabilitation #wildtracks #howlermonkey #endthepettrade #belize #wherethewildthingsare Please note that I am volunteering at a wildlife rehabilitation centre with animals that have either been injured or orphaned for various reasons. If it was not necessary I not would have hands on contact but the young age of some of the orphans requires them to have a 'surrogate mum'. Monkeys do not make good pets and it is often illegal to keep them as such. All animals are here with the intention to rehabilitate them and release them back into the wild. Wildtracks has released 57 howler monkeys in previous years and has a 96% success rate. Max, Maya, Ivy and Sean will soon be weaned off human contact and eventually released back into the wild.
Sometimes we stumble upon the most incredible souls with the most tragic life histories. Sometimes those souls are seen through the eyes of another species. This is Tonku, my white handed gibbon bestie. He was removed from the pet trade and has the kindest heart. All he ever needs his someone to hold his hand and scratch his back. I miss you buddy, but hopefully we will meet again soon ♡ #beautifulsoul #gibbon #calgaryzoo #besties #zookeeper #dreamjob #holdmyhand #primatology #primates #lesserape #apesofinstagram #wildlife #captivity #love #loveislove #handholding #kindness #savetheearth #oneplanet #endthepettrade #conservation #primatelove #whitehandedgibbon #happiness

Thankful for each day and every experience! This little fox kit was stolen from its den in a junk yard, with the intention of keeping it and its siblings as pets. Grateful he came to us at the refuge, where we will soon unite him with other baby foxes and raise him apart from humans, so he can be released back to the wild one day! #wildliferescue #babyfox #floridawildlife #keepthewildWILD #endthepettrade #conservation

It's illegal to hunt, sell, or keep chimpanzees, gorillas, bonobos, and many other primates as pets. Ratch and Joe were some of the more fortunate ones, rescued by PASA member, Tacaguma Chimpanzee Sanctuary. Support PASA's work to protect Africa's primates and their habitat and to care for those confiscated from trade: http://www.pasaprimates.org/donate/

Alouatta pigra- This is Polly, one of the three Ps at Wildtracks wildlife rehabilitation centre, photo taken in 2013. A monkey, a wild animal and not a pet. Polly is now a wild animal and a mother in Fireburn nature reserve. The jungle, where she and her species belong and not in the pet trade. #wild #naturelovers #animal #monkey #nature #endthepettrade #wildtracks #belize #primatesofinstagram #howlermonkey #conservation #primateconservation #borntobewild
Happy #worldwildlifeday . As a keeper of animals I feel conflicted about whether or not they should be confined or in the wild, but the fact of the matter that I always come full circle to, is that it's not practical to release all captive bred, hobby animals and all I can try to do is offer a space for animals to be loved and properly cared for in lieu of being in their natural environment, and work towards a career and life that will protect species in their habitats and educate people on the interconnectedness of "wildlife" and us. End novel.
