North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance


North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance (NAPSA) is a continent-wide consortium of sanctuaries that provide lifelong homes to primates who have been victims of biomedical research, the entertainment industry or the exotic pet trade.

NAPSA ¬†was founded in 2010 by the directors of seven of the leading chimpanzee sanctuaries on the continent, with the mission “to advance the welfare of captive primates through exceptional sanctuary care, collaboration and outreach.”

NAPSA is in the midst of a major expansion which, when completed, will enable the Alliance to speak with one unified, powerful voice on behalf of the entire North American  captive primate population.


“Without Community Initiatives, California would not see the impact of hundreds of beneficial projects. They are an important part of our nonprofit landscape.”
