To the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for sparing over 400 chimpanzees from further medical research.
According to a news story , “Almost all of the 451 chimpanzees owned or supported by the National Institutes of Health that are now at research facilities should be permanently retired from research and moved to sanctuaries, with planning for the move to start immediately….”
This is the second time in recent weeks that NIH has announced the retirement of research chimpanzees to sanctuaries.
Take Action: Write a note to the director of the National Institutes of Health thanking his agency for recognizing the need to spare these chimpanzees further time in medical laboratories.
