The AfA Macaque Coalition has joined forces with the Primate Society of Great Britain and the IUCN Primate Specialist Group Section for Human-Primate Interactions to ask the BBC and Netflix to stop using performing primates in their programming. Although this appeal to the media giants was prompted by the use of a pig-tailed macaque in the recent series The Serpent, which they jointly produced, each of them continues to air programming that features other primate species as performers as well. It is increasingly apparent that such use is harmful in many ways and we believe that it's time for it to come to an end. Please read the full letter HERE.
