HSUS | Give Chimpanzees A Sanctuary

The Humane Society asks you to watch this undercover video, and then follow your conscience by demanding our lawmakers give chimpanzees and other great apes a measure of freedom by providing a sancuary and a method of care. Hundreds are currently being warehoused in U.S. labs. Taken from their mothers in the wild and held for years, one named Karen has been caged since the Eisonhower administration.



The Great Ape Protection Act was re-introduced in the House of Representatives last week, on the heels of our undercover investigation. This legislation would phase out invasive research on the more than 1,000 chimpanzees remaining in U.S. laboratories, and lay the groundwork for permanent retirement of the approximately 500 chimpanzees owned by the federal government, including Karen and other chimps at the New Iberia Research Center.
