Comments: The Simian Society of America does not promote the ownership of non-human primates for members of the general public, but does actively support its members who have made a commitment to meet the diverse and complex needs of these incredible primates. The Society provides hands-on support, educational materials, and networking to ensure that non-human primates in private settings have access to the best care available. It also actively supports a Primate Health Network, to collect and distribute health information, to provide medical support to local veternarians, and to provide direct assistance in emergency medical situations. The Society recently affirmed its life long commitment to primates in private settings by expanding its placement network.
