According to preliminary U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service records, in 2013 there was not a single monkey exported from St. Kitts & Nevis into the United States! 2013 was the first in at least 20 years that no animals were exported from the islands. (It appears that there hasn't been a shipment since November 2012 when 44 monkeys arrived in Miami.) At this unexpected good news, ARFF has urged Prime Minister Denzil Douglas to take this opportunity to permanently halt the export from St. Kitts & Nevis of monkeys destined for experimentation.
