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, will be under heavy construction for several months. Should you have any comments, questions, or concerns please contact me.
