PIE CHART
Join Alison Eastwood to give chimpanzees used in research the sanctuary retirement they deserve.
The Story
Last year, two government decisions drastically changed the world for chimpanzees used in research. First, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced that they would permanently retire 310 - the vast majority - of their chimps. Second, Congress revised the Chimpanzee Health Improvement, Maintenance, and Protection Act (CHIMP Act, very clever) to provide government funding for a portion of the continued care of retired chimps.

This places the only National Chimpanzee Sanctuary, Chimp Haven, in a difficult position. To accept the new retirees, the sanctuary must more than double in size and secure the additional resources it needs for the chimps' lifetime care. While 110 of the NIH chimps have already arrived at the Sanctuary, the fate of the other chimps is still up in the air. That is why I've partnered with LoveAnimals.org in support of Chimp Haven.

I've worked with many wild animal sanctuaries, and Chimp Haven has always stood out. The sanctuary lies on 200 wooded acres just outside of Shreveport, Louisiana. Chimp Haven provides chimpanzees with the freedom to make choices, live in large social groups in spacious habitats, see the sky overhead, feel the grass under their feet, and receive round-the-clock humane care and veterinary treatment.

Every resident of Chimp Haven has a beautiful, unique personality, and a couple stood out to me. Jimoh, beloved by both chimpanzees and sanctuary caregivers, recently passed away. He was born in the wild and taken from his natural environment at a young age, after which he spent most of his life in biomedical research. When he finally arrived at Chimp Haven he remembered his natural behaviors. He loved to roam the forest, climb trees and eat leaves or other natural items he found. He was a quiet, older male who maintained dominance through intelligence and social skills rather than brute strength, making him a great example for younger males. 'Grampa Jimmy' is missed, but I find comfort in knowing that he spent his retirement years well cared for and in the company of other members of his species at Chimp Haven.

Many chimps still carry the diseases that they were exposed to as research subjects. Crystal, a beautiful female with dark black hair and white whiskers, was infected with HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Chimp Haven is the only sanctuary in the U.S. equipped to care for a large number of chimpanzees infected with HIV and hepatitis. There, expert staff ensures that Crystal receives her medications on time, delivered in her favorite food, peanut butter banana sandwiches.

You can make a difference right now by donating to my project. 100% of your donation will go towards giving research chimps the life in retirement that we owe them. Most of the chimps are elderly and have faced unimaginable physical and emotional trauma. Some are expected to die before they can breathe the fresh air of the outdoors. When it comes to getting them out of laboratories and into sanctuary, there is no time to waste.

Sincerely,

Alison Eastwoo
