Oprah had a baby chimpanzee and baby orangutan on her show today. She does a lot of great things for animals (including this about our good friends at ALDF!), but unfortunately she and her producers were misguided about this issue. The orangutan and chimpanzee were provided by TIGERS, a facility known for purchasing and breeding “exotic” animals, as well as providing them for film and TV. Please give the Oprah folks some feedback: both that this choice was a mistake and that they should use their power to shine light on true chimpanzee sanctuaries. For talking points, visit our Primate Patrol site.
