Tomorrow (Monday) is the first day of the International Primatological Society Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland. There is a very important symposium occurring at this conference on August 8th (Foxie’s birthday) – a discussion of the use of chimpanzees in invasive biomedical research. Learn more on the Humane Society of the United States’ website.
Also, the Project R&R site is filled with information about the use of chimpanzees in biomedical research and the work being done to end this practice. It’s shocking what we have put chimpanzees through, including those now (thankfully) living at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest.
