ACTION

Tell your Federal legislators to support an end to biomedical research on chimpanzees and ask that they cosponsor the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act (H.R.1513/S.810).

Because this is a new bill and new number, even if you previously signed a letter in support of ending chimpanzee research, it is vital that you PLEASE sign again.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Support the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act (H.R.1513/S.810)
Dear [Decision Maker],
Please show your support of the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act (H.R.1513/S.810) to end the use of chimpanzees in invasive research by signing on as a cosponsor.

The Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act seeks to prohibit:

  • invasive research on great apes (chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas, orangutans, and gibbons)
  • the funding of such research both within and outside of the U.S.
  • the transport of great apes for such research; or
  • the breeding of great apes for such research;

The Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act seeks to require

  • the permanent retirement of all federally-owned great apes

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
