More Than a 100 Chimpanzees Released from Lab

The National Institutes of Health announces it will retire 110 chimpanzees this year.

Recently, the National Institutes of Health announced that it would be retiring 110 of 563 chimpanzees used in experiments over the course of the next year. All 110 of the chimps will be considered unable to be tested on for future research experimentations once officially released. Ten of the primates will be moved to Chimp Haven sanctuary in Keithville, LA, and the rest will make their way to the Texas Biomedical Research Institute, but will not be practiced on. In July the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act was approved by a Senate committee to move to the next round of legislation. Currently, the United States is the only country that allows for chimpanzees to be used in invasive medical experiments.
