Who’s There? Michale E. Keeling Center

May 11, 2012 • Posted in

A listing of 205 chimpanzees originally held at the Michale E. Keeling Center for Comparative Medicine and Research (KCCMR). Of the 205 listed, about 163-175 remain, according to data provided by the National Institutes of Health in October 2013.

KCCMR (affiliated with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center) has 43 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 9 chimpanzees born after the 1995 voluntary federal breeding moratorium. 

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.
