Abstract: First paragraph: The guidelines presented here were prepared by the International Primatology Society (IPS) Captive Care Committee (CCC) (list of committee members provided on Page i), sent out for comment to IPS members, and subsequently endorsed by the IPS Executive Council at the XXIst IPS Congress in Entebbe, Uganda. The guidelines have been revised to take into account considerable advances in scientific knowledge in the field of primatology (e.g., physiological, psychological, socio-ecological and behavioral) and major changes in attitudes and practice, especially regarding animal welfare. They aim to promote good practice in the acquisition, care and breeding of primates, and the enhancement of animal welfare. Many of the guidelines are not original; rather they are synopses of relevant laboratory and exotic animal standards, guidelines and regulations from a variety of agencies. In preparation of this document, the Committee used the references listed in Annex 1 and suggests that the reader refer to them directly for specific details and specifications.
