United States: Urge Your U.S. Representative to Co-Sponsor the Captive Primate Safety Act

This action is for US residents only.

Nonhuman primates, such as monkeys and apes, are highly intelligent and sensitive animals. Yet many nonhuman primates are languishing in tiny cages and backyards across the country due to inadequate laws. The Captive Primate Safety Act (H.R. 1776/S. 2562) would crack down on the private possession of these animals by prohibiting the interstate or foreign sale or transportation of nonhuman primates for the wild “pet” trade.

Help make this bill into law by asking your U.S. Representative to sponsor the Captive Primate Safety Act today.

  1. Call your U.S. Representative and urge them to support H.R 1776. Phone calls have much more impact than emails. If you’re able to make a phone call, please do so. You can use this message: “Please protect nonhuman primates and co-sponsor the Captive Primate Safety Act.”
    1. If your Representative is already a co-sponsor (read the full list of sponsors here), then use our form below to send a thank you message!
  1. After calling, please send a follow-up email to your U.S. Representative using the form below. Personalizing your message will help it stand out.
