China Southern Airlines: Stop Cruel Primate Shipments

After Air China, China Eastern Airlines, Hainan Airlines, and other leading Chinese airlines have stopped shipping primates to misery and death in laboratories, experimenters are running out of ways to get their hands on monkeys from China, the largest exporter of nonhuman primates to the U.S. each year. Unfortunately, PETA U.S. has received information indicating that China Southern Airlines—which previously announced that it had ended the practice—has resumed this bloody business, quietly bowing to pressure from laboratories desperate to continue profiting from abusing monkeys in barbaric experiments. We need your help to convince this airline to do the right thing. Please take a minute of your time to urge China Southern Airlines to join every other major airline in China by reinstating its ban on shipping primates to laboratories.

Philippine Airlines: Stop Cruel Primate Shipments

Philippine Airlines continues to ship monkeys to laboratories for use in experimentation, even though almost every other major airline has already stopped this cruel practice. Monkeys on Philippine Airlines flights are stuffed into wooden crates and transported on long journeys in the dark, terrifying cargo holds of airplanes to laboratories, where they are locked inside barren cages, poisoned, cut open, and killed in barbaric experiments. Many of the monkeys who meet this horrible fate are torn away from their families in the wild. According to documents obtained by PETA U.S., in two shipments in July and August of 2012, Philippine Airlines flew 190 pig-tailed macaque monkeys crammed into tiny crates from Indonesia to the Los Angeles International Airport. Once there, the monkeys were transported nearly 1,500 miles in loud, dark, and terrifying cargo trucks to a Texas quarantine facility run by the notorious Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories before being trucked another 2,700 miles to the University of Washington-affiliated Washington National Primate Research Center in Seattle.  Fortunately, air passengers concerned about the treatment of animals have other options. Almost all major passenger and cargo airlines in the world—including Air China, Thai Airways, China Southern Airlines, Singapore Airlines, and Cathay Pacific—now refuse to ship primates to laboratories. Please take a minute of your time to urge Philippine Airlines to join these other airlines by adopting a formal policy prohibiting the transport of primates destined for experiments.
