Goals / Remit

The Animal Protection Agency (APA) is the only European organisation solely focused on ceasing the trade in wild animals as pets. The Agency also lobbies at national and European level for changes in the law to protect captive exotic animals.

APA conducts awareness raising programmes on all issues concerning the trade in wild animals as pets. It also coordinates research into the impacts of the wildlife trade on individual animals, species and the natural environment, as well as the risks of disease transmission between wildlife and people. Supporting APA is a team of scientific, veterinary and legal advisors that includes specialists in exotic animal welfare, conservation and public health.

By concentrating resources on tackling the exotic pet trade, APA aims to achieve real and lasting results for animals and their environments. The Agency also aims to help protect people from problems associated with acquiring wild animals or pet-linked disease.
