    Goals / Remit

    Globally recognized for its expertise in caring for primates and other non-domesticated exotic animals, AAP also stimulates public debate and political decision-making, including by giving input to legislative consultations, providing expert advice to policy-makers throughout Europe and educating the broader public. Our rescue experience of nearly 50 years has provided us with a unique perspective on the myriad of problems that exotic animals endure in Europe, which informs our advocacy work. We can keep rescuing tigers from circuses and degus from private owners for generations to come, but only better policies and legislation will solve the problem for good.

    Keeping non-domesticated exotic animals as pets or in inadequate conditions, trading them illegally or exploiting them in the entertainment industry often leads to severe welfare problems. We take on those subjects that are causing or likely to cause the most problems in practice.
