新的建设,使空间更加黑猩猩在项目黑猩猩退休

我昨天在项目黑猩猩来到就像晚宴被投放到其居民:79只退休研究黑猩猩谁现在称之为坐落在蓝岭山脉这个葱茏,236英亩的保护区在格鲁吉亚自己的家。

The building we were in is a brand-new, state-of-the-art structure named the Laurie and Carlee McGrath Chateau, after the two generous donors whose funding and support made it possible, and it is the fifth and largest chimpanzee house at the sanctuary, with room for 40 chimpanzees. There are already 14 residents at the Chateau and, contrary to what I had expected, they were an incredibly patient lot at dinnertime. At home, mealtimes with my dog Lilly and cats Misti and Storm are an enthusiastic affair, so I assumed there would be lots of jockeying among the chimpanzees for the best position, and some pushing. Instead, the animals waited calmly for their turn, apparently aware of the order and pace of the caretakers serving their meal. They didn’t all clamor to the front of their enclosures, and even appeared to know who got what and when. When dinner—nutritional biscuits, vegetables, fruits and a frozen pumpkin smoothie for dessert–was served, they ate quietly and happily.

我们甚至被黑猩猩,狮子座,谁手舞足蹈,敲击着他的一切机箱中的一种处理,以即兴晚餐后的性能。他不停地时间和完全击败。

是什么让我的旅行变得更加特别这个时候是我在这里跟劳瑞麦格拉思和她的妈妈,卡尔利,谁,在94,从加州前往看到黑猩猩。此外合照,在右边,阿里Crumpacker,项目黑猩猩的执行董事。

我作为国内最具影响力的动物保护组织的总裁和CEO职位带我到几乎所有类型的情况,涉及动物,从令人心碎的感人。在这儿,在Project Chimps,这是由美国慈善协会的支持,绝对属于后一类。亚博app金沙大赌场是什么让我的旅行变得更加特别这个时候是我在这里跟劳瑞麦格拉思和她的妈妈,卡尔利,谁,在94,从加州前往看到黑猩猩。

We toured the sanctuary, which opened five years ago, and its many facilities designed with the comfort and care of its very special residents in mind. There’s the six-acre Peachtree Habitat, a lush, forested area with no caging overhead, where the chimpanzees can forage, climb and play, exactly like they would in the wild. They spend their time eating, laying in the sun and sleeping. At the sanctuary’s veterinary hospital, staff and volunteers conduct careful scientific observations of the chimpanzees to monitor their behavior and use of the enrichment tools offered, and also work to promote the animals’ successful social integration.

该酒店是一间5600平方英尺的大楼,并在除了卧室的黑猩猩,它具有气候控制,大集团的外壳和一个露天的封闭阳台。它是在130万$成本建造。其中谁在已经转移的动物是大力士,谁是只有两个,当他被租借给他,并在项目黑猩猩,狮子座的他组偶,被迫直立行走在运动的研究纽约的实验室。然后有贾巴尔,一个温和的巨人谁在不同的实验室度过29年后项目黑猩猩到来。

该HSUS导致了长达十年的斗争就这样结束大力士,狮子座和贾巴尔在实验室黑猩猩的分离和痛苦。在2015年我们的努力导致了美国政府的它宣布将列出所有黑猩猩在濒危物种法案的濒危,有效地结束该国所有侵入性的黑猩猩研究。帮助项目黑猩猩是我们的承诺,以确保动物来这类研究出来有一个地方和平退役的一部分。

该保护区是项目黑猩猩和新伊比利亚研究中心,这家私人拥有的黑猩猩人口最多的创始人之间的协商,对动物的整个人口转移到避难所一辈子照顾一个协议的结果。酒庄的建成将使项目黑猩猩带来额外的40只黑猩猩从NIRC永久退役。到所有的动物在移动,圣域将容纳超过200只黑猩猩。

It was with a heavy but full heart that I said goodbye to the beautiful animals of Project Chimps this afternoon. There are lots of plans for the sanctuary in coming years, and already I am looking forward to my next visit. A second phase expansion to build new chimpanzee habitats and housing from the ground up is now underway. As we work toward our shared goal of retiring all 200 chimpanzees at NIRC to Project Chimps, we continue to look forward to your enthusiastic support and commitment to help make this important dream come true.请慷慨解囊这些动物,这样他们就可以花自己的余生在和平和舒适性,远远没有一个研究实验室的恐惧和生命的记忆。

    请告诉我这篇文章的黑猩猩fit into this outcome if they do or is this FB post after the fact:

    美国国立卫生研究院(NIH)已经选择了背叛43只黑猩猩谁是应该被退役避难所经过多年的试验和研究的!

    Danny, a 44th chimp, endured years of torment: Born in 1982 in a research lab, Danny was separated from his mother, had his leg amputated at age 6 and was so traumatized by his living conditions and the experiments that he began mutilating himself by age 10. For 37 years, Danny never got to know life outside a lab—he was euthanized just a few weeks ago.

    但剩下的43只黑猩猩还是有机会的。请发送邮件到美国国立卫生研究院敦促他们检讨自己的决定,现在给这些有情众生的机会!
