INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
Tell Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius to keep almost 200 chimpanzees at the Alamogordo Primate Facility (APF) in New Mexico and create a sanctuary there. Since 2001, chimpanzees have been housed at APF, where they cannot be used for research. However, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) plans to move the chimpanzees—many of them at least 30 years old—to the Southwest National Primate Research Facility in San Antonio, Texas, where they can be used in painful, invasive experiments.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
