Welcome to former site of The Primate Conservation
and Welfare Society. During the last four years PCWS
worked to educate the public regarding issues related
to the conservation and welfare of nonhuman primates.
We also raised funds for overseas projects, provided
conservation grants to insitu conservation efforts,
and donated materials to US primate sanctuaries.
In the months since the charity closed its doors this
website has undergone a heavy edit. Today visitors will
find a stronger emphasis on issues related to primates
in captivity (specically entertainment and pet issues),
primate sanctuaries in the United States, and Dr. Dian
Fossey. This is primarily because these issues are of
greatest interest to me, and are issues which I believe
are under-represented on the Internet today.
This site, like NTWomen.com, will be under heavy construction
for several months. Should you have any comments, questions,
or concerns please contact me.

Chimpanzee Care has purchased the Coulston Foundation.
Along with the purchase of the land and all buildings
comes over three hundred primates, including over two
hundred chimpanzees. Please visit their website to see
how you can help.
Primate Protection League is still working hard
on the illegal sale of several infant gorillas. Please
visit their website to see how you can help.
