Contact your U.S. Senators and Representatives and encourage the passage of the Captive Primate Safety Act, to prohibit the pet trade of nonhuman primates in the United States. This bill, H.R. 2856, prohibit interstate commerce in monkeys, apes and other primates for the exotic pet trade.

Tell others about the Captive Primate Safety Act, why primates don’t make good pets, and why they should not be used in entertainment.

Don’t support any circuses, movies or television shows that use live exotic animals or attractions which use wild animals as photo props.

Do support movies and television shows which feature CGI animals.
