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.

APA is a member of ENDCAP, a pan-European coalition of animal welfare NGOs and wildlife professionals from European countries whose members specialise in the welfare and protection of wild animals in captivity.
ENDCAP is a membership coalition that provides a forum for the exchange of information and expertise to support the projects and campaigns of individual members in their own countries.
Through collaboration and coordinated action, ENDCAP addresses issues at European policy level to seek greater protection for wild animals in captivity in Europe.
Ultimately, ENDCAP and its Membership aim to phase out the keeping of wild animals in captivity, through the adoption of advocacy, investigation, education and campaigning to increase an understanding of the issues and concurrently raise standards.
