Who’s There? Alamogordo Primate Facility

June 18, 2015 • Posted in

A listing of 286 chimpanzees originally held at the Alamogordo Primate Facility. Of the 286 listed, 152 remain, according to data provided by the facility in March 2015.

Alamogordo (affiliated with the National Institutes of Health) has 33 chimpanzees born prior to the 1975 ban on capturing free-living chimpanzees in Africa, indicating that some may have been captured from the wild as infants, and 4 chimpanzees born after the 1995 voluntary federal breeding moratorium. Of the current population, there are 39 elder females and 71 elder males.

Chimpanzees are considered elderly beginning at 25 years for males (DOB 1989 or earlier) and 30 years for females (DOB 1984 or earlier).*

If you have current or historic information on the chimpanzees held at this facility, please contact us.
