BUAV Primate Trade Investigations

Since the BUAV carried out the first ever in-depth investigation of the trade in nonhuman primates for research, we have continued to lead the field with our undercover work. Our exposés of the cruelties inherent in the trade and supply of primates receive international media coverage and have resulted in source country trade restrictions, government bans on the use of wild-caught animals and airline embargoes.
