Mexico Just Created the Largest Marine Reserve in North America

In a move that will protect hundreds of species, Mexico’s government just created the world’s largest marine reserve in North America. The new reserve surrounds the Revillagigedo Archipelago, a chain of four volcanic islands, including Socorro, Clarión, San Benedicto, and Roca Partida, off the country’s Pacific coast. Fishing, extractive activities and development for tourism on the islands […]

I met these brave chimpanzees when I lived in New Mexico. Some of them were even brave heros who served in the space program, only to be "retired" for many years in small cages in a (former) NM health laboratory.

 

Thanks to the wonderful work of many special people, some of these wonderful "people" have already made it safely to a chimpanzee sanctuary in Florida. There is still much work to do to save the remaining chimps from being sent to another horrifying laboratory. So far, many people just like us have responded, and have post-poned the final decision, leaving these beautiful beings safe for the time-being.

 

Please help us all to save the remaining chimps by mandating that they too be allowed the time and opportunity to raise funding for more room at the chimpanzee sanctuary.

Project R&R: Release and Restitution for Chimpanzees in U.S. Laboratories
 


2011 is off to a hopeful start for 186 chimpanzees at Alamogordo Primate Facility (APF), who have been granted a reprieve from transfer to a Texas laboratory for use in invasive research.

According to a National Institutes of Health (NIH) statement issued yesterday, the transfer will be delayed “pending an Institute of Medicine [the health arm of the National Academy of Sciences] in-depth analysis to reassess the scientific need for the continued use of chimpanzees….” The report is expected to take about two years.

NEAVS/Project R&R and other national groups, including Animal Protection of New Mexico, breathed a sigh of relief at this decision, which came after months of urging the NIH to keep the chimpanzees in New Mexico. APF, a holding facility, does not conduct experiments on the premises, and the individuals now housed there have been spared from research for the past 10 years. NIH’s plan to move them to the Southwest National Primate Research Center to be readily available for invasive research provoked national opposition, including from New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and other public figures.

Dr. Theodora Capaldo, NEAVS/Project R&R President, stated, “In the midst of national efforts to get all chimpanzees out of invasive research, this decision signals an important willingness on the part of our government to consider their policies toward chimpanzees in research at large.”

For chimpanzees like Flo, Danny, Heidi, Robbie, and the others at APF, the delay in the transfer is good fortune. Flo, the oldest chimpanzee at APF, is 53. According to Animal Protection of New Mexico, she has chronic weight loss, anemia, and cardiac arrhythmias. Flo gave birth to four children, all of whom were taken from her for research. All but one, Jojo — now 27 and also at APF — are dead.

While this halt to the transfer is promising, NEAVS/Project R&R will continue pressing NIH to permanently retire not only the Alamogordo chimpanzees but all those now held in labs. The Great Ape Protection Act, legislation which would end invasive chimpanzee research in the U.S. and release all federally-owned chimpanzees to sanctuary, had 161 cosponsors in the U.S. House of Representatives and six cosponsors in the Senate at the close of the 111th Congress.

NEAVS/Project R&R’s work, including reviews of chimpanzee use in human disease research, along with the work of millions of individuals and dozens of other animal protection groups and sanctuaries, is building steady progress for this legislation. Broad-based support for the bill comes from bipartisan legislative leadership and co-sponsorship, as well as animal protection groups, scientists, chimpanzee experts, celebrities, and the general public.

There are some wonderful new companies of animal-friendly cosmetics out, and they are awesome productsl! (it used to be often that the safe products were actually hard on sensitive skin)... but no more! I even found a superb mascara for sensitive eyes, all vegan and 100percent cruelty free!!

The main company is called "mineral fusion" (I think, I'll have to check) but you can find it in any all whole foods type food store (whole foods, vitamin cottage, sunflower markets, sprouts, etc.) The products are fabulous and feel and stay on great. and I feel GREAT everyday knowing my makeup is animal safe and laboratory-free. not to mention better all around ingredients for the skin.

(If I could have one wish granted me in this lifetime, it will be to see all animals freed from laboratories, ... especially for cosmetics!, but from all of them for sure.)

There are a few other great brands I have found also, if anyone is interested I can share their names as well, am sure you could find them on the internet too (have to go grab them to catch their names), but I found the BEST lipstick - I LOVE it, and on the box, it's so cute, it says somethign like: Love, Joy, Caring, Freedom and has these cute little emblems on it, I just love it. It's the best lipstick too. Seriously. You'd love it!! It stays on all day and the color and feel is great. Let me know if anyone wants the names!!

:)
