Just the Facts
According to the 2018 USDA animal care report, there are approximately 106,000 monkeys living in U.S. research laboratories. Some researchers have asserted that sanctuaries are unnecessary because the monkeys are re-used or euthanized.
However, many other researchers would like to send the monkeys to a sanctuary, but are often unable to find space for them at the nine existing sanctuaries. Those monkeys who had a brief chance at sanctuary life will likely not get another opportunity.
Primates Incorporated believes as long as the FDA testing regulations and the primate research industry exist, the least we can do as a society is give back to the primates by sending them to spacious and enriching sanctuaries whenever possible.
