PASA Sanctuaries

"PASA is committed to the conservation and care of African primates through the unique alliance of African sanctuaries."

PASA sanctuaries were created over the last three decades to accommodate the staggering numbers of orphaned chimpanzees, gorillas, bonobos and other endangered primates in Africa. The Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center in Gambia came first in 1974, but more and more appeared as the century drew to a close.

Today, PASA members and affiliated sanctuaries literally span the continent of Africa.

The PASA Code of Conduct assumes a number of values that require all members and their staffs to exhibit a.) a concern for the primates; b.) integrity; c.) transparency; d.) fairness;
e.) conscientiousness; f.) professionalism; and
g.) personal and institutional commitment to conservation.

Each sanctuary is tailored to the species it protects and the country within which it works, but one aspect is the same in every single facility: A deep and passionate interest in protecting primates and the wild spaces they inhabit.

Said chimpanzee activist Jane Goodall: “These refuges walk a fine line between conservation and captivity, yet their mission is no less important. They operate on the front lines in areas of hardship and anger, and their dedication to protecting mankind’s next of kin is admirable.”
