Let U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service know you support the status change of captive chimpanzees to “endangered”!
The USFWS will be accepting public comments until August 12 on a proposal to upgrade the status of captive chimpanzees from “threatened” to “endangered”. Now is the time to close this “split listing” loophole which for decades has enabled biomedical research, chimpanzees as “pets”, and commercial exploitation in advertising and circuses. We need your help!
Please join us and Dr. Jane Goodall in supporting this significant proposal. Comments may be mailed or sent electronically to the USFWS until August 12, 2013.
