'Primate actor' on set during the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean 5

‘Primate actor’ on set during the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean

Earlier this year we raised serious concerns over the use of performing capuchin monkeys in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 5’, so it is disappointing to report that our concerns have been ignored, as these images of the capuchins ‘on set’ have appeared online. We need to continue to put pressure on the film’s producers to let them know that it is not acceptable to exploit primates in this way. Our petition has almost 80,000 signatures, but we need more- please SIGN and SHARE!
