CITES

The researchers of the BPRC only use animals bred for research purposes and that are preferably derived from the colony at the BPRC. Only if there is no alternative, in specific, exceptional cases, monkeys are obtained from authorized breeding centers. Import and export of monkeys and materials from monkeys is strictly regulated according to the CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) that has been signed by the Netherlands.
