Chimpanzees deserve release from laboratories and restitution in sanctuary. For decades chimpanzees have suffered and died in U.S. laboratories – unnecessarily. Today in the U.S. some 600 chimpanzees are safe in sanctuary – approximately 1,000 are waiting their turn. Like us, chimpanzees care about family, make choices, laugh, cry, and suffer when their freedom is taken. The Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act will end the use of chimpanzees in research.
