Chimpanzees have been used in biomedical and behavioral research in the United States since 1930. As of 2015, there were more than 700 chimpanzees held in U.S. laboratories. The majority of chimpanzees are housed in the facilities below. Unlike the others, no invasive biomedical research occurs at the Alamogordo Primate Facility. It is merely a holding facility for government-owned chimpanzees. Click below for U.S. Department of Agriculture inspection reports (to ascertain, if possible, Animal Welfare Act compliance).
