Good Works Program
AdvancedPrimate.com holds a strong belief that it is better to give than to receive. We also believe that we should all strive to make the world a better place than it was when we found it. It is based upon these simple, but very important ideals that we built the Good Works Program: to enhance our ability to affect positive change in the lives of animals. Scroll down to learn more.
The Wildlife Conservation Network
A portion of all profits generated by Advanced Primate go towards improving the lives of animals around the world. We have selected the Wildlife Conservation Network (wildnet.org) as our vehicle to affect this positive change, because they are a thoroughly vetted group of conservationists, supporters, and staff united in our passion for wildlife. Significant time and effort was spent selecting the WCN because we wanted to be certain of two things. First, that a large percentage of our donations would go directly to animal charity work (not overhead) and at the WCN only 6% of funds received are earmarked for overhead activities. In some cases, it is 0%. Second, we wanted to do good for animals, but we didn’t want to be tied to one type of charity work forever. We were searching for a network of top quality charities with a variety of different goals so that we could move between them as we grow and evolve too. The WCN affords us that opportunity as well. We encourage you to follow our social media accounts (page bottom) and sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date with news and stories about this wonderful adventure.
