Chimpanzees deserve release from laboratories and restitution in sanctuary. Today in the U.S. some 600 chimpanzees are safe in sanctuary – approximately 1,000 are waiting their turn. Chimpanzee research to benefit human health has proven unnecessary and unproductive. For decades chimpanzees have suffered and died in U.S. laboratories – unnecessarily. The Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act will end the use of chimpanzees in research.
