AESOP-Project [Allied Effort to Save Other Primates] is an international coalition of individuals and organizations dedicated to protecting monkeys and apes.
AESOP-Project strives to prevent monkeys and apes from becoming victims of any form of abuse and/or exploitation.
Allied Effort to Save Other Primates` acronym `AESOP` is derived from Aesop, the Greek fabulist. Aesop was born a slave; however, he was freed by his second owner. The owner took the time to get to know Aesop; and, as such learned to appreciate and respect the extent of Aesop`s wit and intellect. Analogously, AESOP-Project strives to educate others about the extent of the wit and intellect possessed by monkeys and apes, in hopes that they too will soon be respected and freed.
