Chimpanzee research to benefit human health has proven unnecessary and unproductive. Chimpanzees deserve release from laboratories and restitution in sanctuary. Like us, chimpanzees care about family, make choices, laugh, cry, and suffer when their freedom is taken. 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 577 are waiting their turn.
