Chimpanzees in labs have never climbed a tree or touched grass.
We need to Change this!
I have been working real hard speaking out for the chimps. I have given out lots of my bookmarks and asked lots of people to contact their congressman and support the Great Ape Protection Act H.R. 1326. You can do this too! It is easy. All you have to do is go to http://www.house.gov/ and put in your zip code to find your representative. Please write them and also visit my online petition at the top of my blog.
Also there are lots of sanctuaries that could use our help. Of course they need money but they also need fleece blankets for nesting, nuts, peanut butter and other things. You can collect donations from friends and family and mail a care package. I did this and it was so much fun!
Here you will get a list of things the chimps like and need.
There are also other sanctuaries that need things for the chimps they are the Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest (CSNW) and the Chimpanzee and Human Communication Institute. I sent packages to them too!
I am getting ready for Central Florida Earth Day 2010! I am going to have an awareness table where people can see my backboards and learn about chimps in labs and in entertainment. I will also be speaking on a panel so people will know how I got started speaking out for the chimps. I am excited and hope that I will get a lot more people to sign my Great Ape Protection Act letters and also that they can learn about the chimps.
I AM HOPING MORE PEOPLE WILL SPEAK OUT FOR THE GREAT APES!
