Chimps Deserve Sanctuary
Over 40 chimpanzees have been languishing at the Alamogordo Primate Facility (APF) in New Mexico for years. Last week, with the excuse that it’s for their own good, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) decided to deny their chance for freedom. These chimpanzees were used in horrific experiments, many funded by NIH, as well as other government agencies. Fortunately, research using these chimps ended almost two decades ago, but they cannot wait to be moved to a sanctuary home.
Please speak out for these chimpanzees, who deserve sanctuary.
The chimpanzees at APF are advancing in years and suffering the cumulative effects of a lifetime of confinement and harsh treatment. A healthy and wholesome sanctuary environment has the power to give these chimpanzees a superior quality of life in their remaining years.
Contact your legislators and urge them to demand that NIH move these chimpanzees out of APF and to the Chimp Haven sanctuary.
