Wenka is a frail 54-year-old chimpanzee, held at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center in Atlanta, who deserves the comfort of sanctuary before she dies. In captivity, chimpanzees can live up to 50-60 years. Her time is running out. HELP SAVE HER!

I'm not sure why the above post, which was put onto an article I posted about Ethos gas treatment is also on this one?? Very strange, but not at all relevant!!

Thank you all for signing and for caring about our research chimps. They suffer immensely, the very least we can do is send them to sanctuary now.

If you haven't done so yet, please also sign this petition to reunite two chimp brothers who lived at the same research facility for 21 years and have been separated. I want to send off the petition in the next month.

Also sign this one asking that no more monkeys be imported for research:
