A loophole is preventing the recovery of chimpanzees in the wild by encouraging their illegal trade. A special rule exempting captive chimpanzees from protection is compromising conservation efforts.

S,S,N & In the petition comments box I wrote:

Captive chimps should receive full protection under The Endangered Species Act, because even though they are captive they are the same species as wild chimps. It's not right to classify a species as endangered but to not include part of that species just because they are captive. An endangered species is an endangered species no matter where they live
