BACKGROUND | SOURCE ALDF

All chimpanzees deserve protection — the ones in the wild, yes, but also the ones captive in labs, zoos, and private homes. That’s why we are rallying our supporters to comment on a proposed rule that would protect all chimpanzees under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

Will you comment in support of the proposed rule today?

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) announced its proposal to classify captive chimpanzees as endangered under the ESA — the proposed rule would end the “split-listing” of chimpanzees, which incongruously gives endangered species protections to wild members of the species residing in Africa but not to their captive counterparts living in the United States.

Among other things, the split-listing has led to cruel and unnecessary biomedical research on captive chimpanzees, as well as the routine exploitation and abuse of the species for entertainment purposes and as pets. It’s time to remedy this injustice by standing behind the proposed rule to provide all chimpanzees with Engandered Species Act protections.


WHOM TO CONTACT

Leave a comment with the FWS to show your support of classifying all chimpanzees — captive and wild alike — as endangered!

Please note: You need to only submit a comment, no other field is required, even your name.


SAMPLE COMMENT

Thank you for proposing the elimination of the split-listing for captive chimpanzees, which was illegal, ineffective, and harmful to both captive and wild chimpanzees. I am writing to urge you to make the proposed rule final, extending the protections of the Endangered Species Act to all chimpanzees.

For the animals,



dear humans,
we share 98%
of our DNA.
when will these
horrors go
away!

    Sorry, should read, “Please help these poor chimps, St. Francis”. I think St. Francis knows what I meant!

    Please give captive chimpanzees equal protection under the endangered species act as their wild counterparts have been classified. End their terrible suffering being used in research which is tantamount to slavery, torture and unbeareable abuse. These wonderful beings only want to live their lives in peace. There is no reason that these animals who are so like humans should become partners in the misfortune of anyone who has a disease that can be researched using many other methods available to us today. End the suffering. Adopt the FWS proposed rule.
