Like us, chimpanzees care about family, make choices, laugh, cry, and suffer when their freedom is taken. Today in the U.S. some 600 chimpanzees are safe in sanctuary – approximately 1,000 are waiting their turn. 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. Chimpanzee research to benefit human health has proven unnecessary and unproductive.
