THE RAMA EXHIBITION GOOD NEWS FOR THE EARTH: NATURE’S HERO: 12 YEAR OLD Saving Chimps from MERCK Lab Research

Brandon Wood, 12-year-old helping save ChimpsThe Rama Team applauds NATURE’S HERO, Brandon Wood and the National Institute of Health for their proposal to retire hundreds of chimps used in research in the US government for ‘inefficient and outdated biodmedical research methods’. 

This is a great step forward in our relationship with chimpanzees.  As I learned from Brandon, the US is the only civilized nation that still does experiments, sometimes invasive and scary on chimpanzees, who spend their lives in cages.  Notably, this research has been shown to be unnecessary and in some cases, slows down the research.

Hats off also to Gilead Sciences and all the other many, many companies who have stopped and promised not to do experiments on chimpanzees. 

Read this story and sign his and his mom’s petition.  They have 55,000 signatures and want 20,000 more!  Sign this petition and spread it around!
