An institution that conducted experiments on approximately 200 chimpanzees and made a commitment to provide them with lifelong care has abandoned the ones who are still alive, leaving them to die of starvation.
NYBC's actions have garnered worldwide condemnation. Dr. Jane Goodall has issued an open letter to NYBC's CEO, Dr. Christopher Hillyer, saying "I find it completely shocking and unacceptable that NYBC would abandon these chimpanzees and discontinue support for even their basic needs."
LION urges the New York Blood Center to continue to provide life-long care for these chimps, who have been inhumanely used as research subjects. Please sign below and demand they do the right thing!
