Project Chimp R&R Scientific and Academic Community Petition

From Project Chimp R&R (Release & Restitution for Chimpanzees in U.S. Laboratories)

If you are an MD, DO, DVM, DDS, DMD, RN, PsyD, PhD, or EdD, please sign today! And please, email your colleagues to do the same.

We, the undersigned members of the scientific and academic community, support efforts to end the use of chimpanzees for biomedical research and testing in the United States and to provide them permanent retirement in sanctuary.

Project R&R will deliver this petition to key U.S. legislators and other policy makers who can help us change laws, release chimpanzees, and retire them to sanctuaries.

Chimpanzees are humans' closest genetic relatives, sharing 96%-98% of our DNA. An estimated 1,000 chimpanzees are currently held in U.S. laboratories, of which approximately half are federally owned. The Great Ape Protection Act (H.R. 1326) will end invasive research on all great apes, end federal funding for such research anywhere in the world and, retire all federally owned chimpanzees into permanent sanctuary.

The time has come for the United States to join the moral and humane community of scientifically advanced countries like the United Kingdom, Austria, Japan, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Sweden, and the Balearic Islands that have banned or limited the use of chimpanzees and other great apes in research.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
