Captive Care Grants

The Captive Care and Breeding Committee is charged with acquiring and disseminating information on ethical and welfare issues and on new technology dealing with captive care and breeding of primates. We are responsible for announcing, receiving, and judging grant and award programs that are aligned with this office.

The IPS has produced international guidelines for the aquisition, care, and breeding of nonhuman primates - available here. (English, French, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, and Thai versions available).

The Captive Care and Breeding Committee of IPS awards grants of up to $1500 for projects focusing on captive care issues that relate to:

  • the status of primates in captivity (e.g., sanctuaries, private, commercial) in range countries
  • information from local wildlife officials and field researchers on the problems relating to captive primates
  • improving conditions for the well-being of captive primates in range countries
