Who’s There? Southwest National Primate Research Center

June 2, 2012 • Posted in

A listing of 209 chimpanzees originally held at the Southwest National Primate Research Center. Of the 209 listed, between 111-160 remain, according to information provided by the National Institutes of Health in 2013 and the SNPRC website.

(Census originally obtained by Stop Experimentation on & Exploitation of Chimpanzees (SEEC) in 2001.)

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) inquiries were sent to Southwest in January 2012 and January 2013 requesting the names and other identifying information for chimpanzees at the facility. Southwest responded and refused to provide information based on the grounds that it is a privately owned facility.

Southwest has 5 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 7 chimpanzees born after the 1995 voluntary federal breeding moratorium. 

Chimpanzees are considered elderly beginning at 25 years for males (DOB 1987 or earlier) and 30 years for females (DOB 1982 or earlier).*

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