On its own, AAP can't solve the welfare problems of non-domesticated exotic animals. That is why we work together with fellow organisations, governments and scientific institutions around the world. Where possible, we will also work with our opponents, because they also need to be persuaded that animal welfare and the protection of species is, in many cases, of great advantage to them as well.

AAP is part of the Dutch Dierencoalitie (the Animal Coalition) and works together with the Dierenbescherming (Dutch Animal Protection Organisation) to improve the wellbeing of non-domesticated exotic animals in the Netherlands.
