Please thank the University of Utrecht, Holland for their recent announcement to end their primate research programs. Tell them to send the five long-tailed macaque monkeys to a sanctuary.

The University of Utrecht, Holland, has recently announced an end to their primate research program and are now deciding what to do with the remaining five long-tailed macaque monkeys. They have stated that they're currently considering one of three options:

  1. Killing them and putting their brains into a database.
  2. Giving the monkeys to Nijmegen University for the similar types of experiments.
  3. Handing them over to one of the sanctuaries that have already agreed to take them.

The emails listed below are for the Governors of the University of Utrecht. These people are ultimately responsible for deciding the fate of the monkeys and they have the power to ensure that the animals are released to a sanctuary, and not killed or sent to other laboratories. Please email them and ask them to free the monkeys, and then share this information with everyone you know and ask them to do the same!

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
