Chimpanzee research to benefit human health has proven unnecessary and unproductive. 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. Chimpanzees deserve release from laboratories and restitution in sanctuary. The Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act will end the use of chimpanzees in research.
