Even though the­re are mostly pri­ma­tes in the CRPL, Lwi­ro Pri­ma­tes (in the Demo­cra­tic Repu­blic of Con­go), this cen­ter still helps other spe­cies, like the red-tai­led parrots. They are con­fis­ca­ted by autho­ri­ties from poa­chers who try to send them to the southeast of Asia and sell them through the mafia of ille­gal ani­mal trade.

The CRPL reha­bi­li­ta­tes them and frees them if they are phy­si­cally and beha­vio­rally pre­pa­red for it.

SOS Pri­ma­tes does­n’t appro­ve of kee­ping the­se ani­mals as pets, for it con­demns the des­tiny of crea­tu­res meant to be free. Even so, the­re are bree­ders who follow the rules and adop­tion alter­na­ti­ves that are more recommendable.

Beco­me a tea­mer of our NGO, and you’ll help the fau­na of the Con­go. More infor­ma­tion at https://www.teaming.net/sos­pri­ma­tes
