Did you know wild chimpanzees are protected by the Endangered Species Act, but captive chimps are not?! This makes no sense.
Good news: the US Fish & Wildlife Svc just announced it is considering a proposal to protect all chimpanzees under the Endangered Species Act!
To make this into law requires a huge outpouring of PUBLIC SUPPORT. Please speak up for all chimps, captive and wild, by adding your name to this petition. We're very close to stopping the suffering of laboratory chimps.
NY Times story about this new proposal
Video of chimps seeing daylight for the first time after being held captive all their lives for medical research. The video leaves no doubt chimpanzees have feelings just like humans, and deserve protection.
All chimps, captive and wild, should be classified as Endangered Species!
