Two weeks after Global Animal Welfare Development Society started a petition on Change.org asking Hainan Airlines to stop transporting primates for the research industry, the airline announced it was canceling a shipment of primates from China to Toronto scheduled for February and would no longer accept any shipments of animals destined for laboratories.

The group wrote: "This is another nail in the coffin of this issue and every single person who signed every worldwide petition for this cause should be congratulated on the progress! On to the next airline!" Global Animal Welfare Development Society's petition added nearly 1,500 voices to the global call for Hainan Airlines to stop supporting animal research. 

"Thank you to all of the supporters who participated in this important cause; and thanks to Change.org for providing such an awesome service for changing the world. Social media and digital activism are giving the people back their voice and power. Here's to many more victories in 2012 with your help."

Hainan Airlines Company Limited (HNA), an airline based in China, is scheduled to fly a shipment of primates to Toronto within the following days. The final destination of these primates is a laboratory in Canada. The purpose of this petition is to urge Hainan Airlines Company Limited (HNA) to join the growing number of airlines that have adopted a permanent embargo on all primate shipments destined for research.

      Stop using primates in research. Hainan Airlines should refuse to fly these monkeys for research. I would like to know who in Toronto is buying them?

      REAL Men and Women Care and protected all animals NO MATTER WHAT. How can you send these beautiful innocent animals to be tortured hourly and daily :-( There is NO reason any animal should be used for experimentation of any kind.
