Help Us Get These Retired Chimps to Sanctuary
Over the years, hundreds of chimpanzees have served this country—from space flight testing to medical research.
Finally, in 2015, a landmark decision put an end to the wasteful and ineffective use of these intelligent, sensitive, endangered animals for invasive testing.
More than 460 chimps have now reached the national chimpanzee sanctuary. But not all of them were so lucky.
Right now, there are fewer than 40 chimps languishing in a costly lab—funded with your tax dollars—on Holloman Air Force Base.
These are the Forgotten Chimps of Alamogordo.
They have served and suffered for this country and they deserve better.
Now, because of government bureaucracy, these last surviving chimps remain abandoned, without the expert care they need, and they face rushed deaths by euthanasia.
Help us free these forgotten laboratory chimps. Let them live out the rest of their lives in sanctuary—in a natural environment with friends and family.
Take action now. Lend your voice to the effort to give our closest relatives the dignity, safety, and care they deserve.
HOW MANY MORE CHIMPS WILL DIE IN ALAMOGORDO?
The remaining chimps at Holloman Air Force Base are in critical danger. Since October 2019, ten chimps have died—at least half of them were euthanized. Charles River Laboratories profits from running the outdated lab facility—using your hard-earned tax dollars—and cannot meet the complex needs of these chimpanzees. The Alamogordo chimps have suffered enough and deserve better.
Please help them to reach sanctuary before it’s too late.
