Chimps, Jane Goodall Appalled – Jane Godall calls German Lab a „Living Hell“
The situation with the chimpanzees in the New Mexico lab is heartless and unacceptable, so we wanted to make sure that you didn’t miss the opportunity to take effective action, offered in last Friday’s e-mail alert.
Over 40 chimpanzees have been languishing at the Alamogordo Primate Facility (APF) in New Mexico for years. On October 24, 2019, with the excuse that it’s for their own good, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced that these chimps would NOT have their chance for freedom. These chimpanzees were used in horrific experiments, many funded by NIH, as well as other government agencies. Research using these chimps ended almost two decades ago, yet they still wait to be moved to a sanctuary home.
The chimpanzees at APF are advancing in years and suffering the cumulative effects of a lifetime of confinement and harsh treatment. A positive sanctuary environment has the power to give these chimpanzees a superior quality of life in their remaining years. Please contact your legislators and urge them to demand that NIH move these chimpanzees out of the lab and to the Chimp Haven sanctuary.
