5 Ways PETA Is Helping Animals in Laboratories This Week

  1. PETA scientists have coedited and coauthored a series of crucial, timely articles for renowned science publisher Frontiers, highlighting diverse approaches to assess chemical toxicity without the use of animals and making recommendations to expand the acceptance of non-animal research methods.
  2. As attendees gathered in San Diego at the Society for Neuroscience’s annual conference, PETA’s mobile billboard blasted attendees and passersby with video footage from inside primate prisons—including the laboratory of National Institutes of Health experimenter Elisabeth Murray.
  3. PETA supporters confronted University of Massachusetts–Amherst experimenter Agnès Lacreuse during a seminar, exposing her horrific and ridiculous menopause experiments on marmoset monkeys.
  4. After numerous PETA complaints and our exposé of the international primate pipeline supplying experimenters—which has had such a devastating impact on certain species of macaques that their conservation status was elevated to endangered—the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced the findings of a multiyear investigation and the U.S. Department of Justice indicted multiple individuals allegedly involved in a monkey-laundering and -smuggling ring!
  5. We’re not letting the feds turn a blind eye to Quebedeaux’s Transport’s animal welfare violations and illegal operations, especially after the notorious monkey transport company reportedly delivered endangered macaques to laboratories after its license was canceled.
