The BUAV has carried out an investigation into the trade in owl monkeys in Colombia and Peru that has revealed the cruel trapping of these wild animals and the destruction of their rainforest habitat. Evidence also uncovered by the BUAV reveals that owl monkeys from Peru have been trapped and used for research in Colombia despite a ban implemented on the export of primates by Peru in 1974.
Please support our call to the authorities in Colombia and Peru to end this cruel trade and stop issuing trapping permits. Furthermore, urge the Peruvian authorities to enforce its ban on the export of primates:
