Save the Great Apes
After watching the “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and surfing through web about the laboratory experiments with these sensitive and intelligent animals, I had to make a small effort on my website and put a few links that can raise an awareness of the primates and their suffering through medical experiments and bushmeat trade. Nearly 1000 chimpanzees still languish inside research laboratories in the United States!
Stop inhumane and ineffective research!
Every second of every day, an animal dies in a U.S. laboratory.
Help get chimpanzees out of labs!

All of the great ape species are endangered in the wild. Scientists predict several species of apes will extinct in the wild within 20 years! What could be more valuable and important to us then to live in peace and harmony with mother earth and all the species she holds?
