Action to be taken against Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia monkey business
Findings from our field investigations raise concerns about illegal monkey trade
Our pioneering investigations have exposed the inherent cruelties involved in the trade. We’ve highlighted the illegalities involved and the impact (both the legal and illegal) trade is having upon wild populations of monkeys. And we have raised concerns about the lack of population data, the misuse of CITES source codes by exporting countries, and lack of validity for captive breeding claims. We welcome the action taken by CITES and will continue to work towards a day when there is a wild future ahead for the monkeys of South East Asia, not a life of captivity in laboratories.
