We ask our supporters to please sign NAVS petition to end research on chimpanzees!

We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the Obama Administration to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets enough support, the Obama Administration will issue an official response.

You can view and sign the petition here.

Now is the time to take action!

It is time for the U.S. to join other industrialized nations and ban the use of chimpanzees in research. Continued funding for studies using chimpanzees has come under increased criticism within the scientific community as well as the general public for its lack of relevance or necessity in advancing human health. The suffering and stress inflicted on these highly intelligent social creatures coupled with the waste of tax payer dollars makes their continued use untenable.

Permanently retiring these chimpanzees to sanctuaries will not only benefit their lives with a more natural environment but will save taxpayer dollars currently being spent to warehouse them in federally funded research institutions.

Please sign this petition and help end research on chimpanzees and stop wasteful government spending.
