Description
 
For over 50 years, the federal government has supported the use of chimpanzees in research; however, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently suspended the use of chimpanzees in agency-supported invasive research. As of January 15, 2016, NIH owned or supported 561 chimpanzees in four facilities, including Chimp Haven, a federal chimpanzee retirement sanctuary. In late 2015, NIH announced that all NIH-owned chimpanzees were eligible for retirement to Chimp Haven. This report examines: (1) the research and retirement status of chimpanzees owned or supported by NIH; (2) the costs for their care and transfers; and (3) potential cost savings associated with NIHšůĽs goal to transfer chimpanzees to Chimp Haven. Includes recommendations. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
