End the keeping of primates as pets

It’s time for a ban

Fifteen European countries have already introduced bans on keeping primates as pets, for either all or some species, because primates don’t make good pets It’s time for Wales to join that list.

It is near impossible to meet the welfare needs of monkeys and other primates in a domestic setting.

We now call on the Welsh Government to also introduce a complete ban on the keeping and trade of primates as pets.
