This week, the National Institutes of Health has announced that it will cut funding for most invasive experiments on chimpanzees and send at least 310 of the 360 federally owned chimpanzees currently imprisoned in laboratories to sanctuaries!
Today’s historic announcement acknowledges what PETA has been saying since we started speaking out against this practice more than a quarter of a century ago: It is NOT OK to torment living beings whom we know suffer greatly from physical, behavioral, and psychological deprivation in laboratories.
This huge victory could not have happened without YOUR help! Want to do even more to speak up for primates?
Well, I love Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, CSI, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who and comic books (I mean, my profile pic IS Damian Wayne and Bat-Cow...). I'm kind of spazzy and I tend to ramble... I'm also an obsessive perfectionist...heh heh...a science/tech nerd and a vegetarian.
