When Farah arrived at Ape Action Africa in September of 2017, he was a very frightened baby chimp. After witnessing the slaughter of his family, he'd been carried around the town of Djoum by a man who was trying to sell him as a pet, and he had spent his nights chained in the man's house.😡 With expert care from our chimpanzee caregivers, Farah made great progress and when his quarantine period was completed, he was able to join the other babies in the forest.🌳💚 Since then Farah has grown into a playful, caring and far more confident chimp, and when his quarantine period ended, he was able to join the other babies in the forest. 🙌❤️ #endanimalcruelty #rescue #repost #endthepettrade #successstory #baby #primate #ape #babyanimal #helpless #recovery #africa 📷 Ape Action Africa / Ian Bickerstaff & Larry Taylor

Ritchie the Green wing Macaw, man this bird did nooooottt like me. He currently lives in Birds of Eden, a free flight sanctuary, for previously caged birds. Birds should not live in cages, they should be free and wild. The pet trade has decimated so many of these birds and has pushed some into extinction. I have watched too many of these animals have broken lives, due to neglect, ignorance or greed. #greenwingMacaw #green #wing #macaw #birdsofeden #plettenberg #westerncape #birdsarenotpets #livesincages #sanctuary #freeflight #animalsdontbelongincages #endthepettrade #extinctionrebellion #Parrot #pruningshearswithwings #feathers #rainbowchicken #
There are millions of nonhuman animals who need adopting and a safe home with human companions who respect their rights as persons. #adoptdontshop

A newly introduced bill called the #CaptivePrimateSafetyAct  (CPSA), that’s supported by Animal Welfare Institute (@awionline ), addresses the cruel and dangerous problem of pet primate ownership in the #UnitedStates . Sponsored by Reps. @repblumenauer (D-OR) and @repbrianfitz (R-PA), this bill would amend the #LaceyAct to prohibit interstate commerce in nonhuman primates (including #apes , #monkeys , #lemurs , and #lorises ) for the exotic #pettrade .🙏🐵 - “The suffering pet primates endure is alarming,” said Cathy Liss, President of AWI in a statement. “They are often forcibly removed from their mothers soon after birth, spend their lives isolated in small cages and endure unnecessary, painful procedures such as tooth extraction. The Captive Primate Safety Act is urgently needed to prevent these animals from entering the inhumane interstate pet trade.” - Conservative estimates suggest that there are at least 15,000 primates kept as pets in the United States. 💔🦍🐵🚫 #EndThePetTrade - - READ MORE: 🌍👉WorldAnimalNews.com @worldanimalnews_ @peace_4animals #WorldAnimalNews

I was so touched to finally see the Jane @janegoodallinst documentary. What moved me most were her less than idealistic observations of the chimps, the deep commitment to letting them be portrayed and honored for all that they are... which doesn’t fit into the little benevolent box we often want wild animals to be in. - Truly an extraordinary visual, historical and scientific journey. - To think how much chimps continue to suffer and decline in numbers due to deforestation, the bush meat trade and illegal pet trade needs to be rectified. - The great apes (and many more creatures than we realize) are more than sentient ... they are completely emotional, feeling things even more deeply than us. Let’s keep them safe to the best of our ability. - #chimpanzee #janegoodall #animalkingdom #wildlifesanctuary #wildlifeconservation #wildlife #janegoodall #janegoodallinstitute #janegoodallbiopic #endthepettrade #stopthepettrade #keepanimalssafe #keepanimalswild #nature #conservation #thetimeisnow #illegalanimaltrade #illegalwildlifetrade
Although he looks like a pet, he isn’t. Peccaries are wild animals. #wildtracksbelize #endthepettrade
