About AAP

AAP (Animal Advocacy and Protection) is a European animal welfare organisation dedicated to the wellbeing of exotic animals such as primates, lions and tigers. Millions of them are kept in poor conditions as pets, illegally traded or brutally exploited in circuses and other forms of entertainment. This causes unimaginable suffering.

To end this, we rescue animals in need, and advocate for better laws and regulations across Europe. It is our mission to tackle private ownership of exotic animals, illegal wildlife trade and entertainment involving wild animals. Because we believe only sustainable EU-wide solutions can effectively prevent the suffering of exotic animals in the future.
