Alamogordo Chimpanzees Still in Grave Danger


Dear friends, despite intense public outcry, the NIH remains firm in its plans to move more than 200 chimpanzees from the Alamogordo Primate Facility (APF) to the Southwest National Primate Research Center in Texas, where they will be subjected to agonizing, invasive "research." Please sign below to register your opposition to this cruel, expensive, and unnecessary scheme. For more information, please visit:
