Over a year ago, the New York Blood Center (NYBC) abandoned more than 60 chimpanzees on a series of Liberian islands. The chimps had no access to food or fresh water, and after years of captivity, they simply could not fend for themselves in the wild.
NYBC promised to provide support for these intelligent and emotional animals, but they’ve refused to renew funding to care for the chimps. These chimps are not objects to be disposed of after they are no longer deemed useful.
Thanks to generous supporters like you, The Humane Society of the United States has been caring for these chimps. Vital water systems have been repaired and food is being delivered daily — and we are working hard to ensure that these animals have the resources they need to live out their remaining years in peace.
You are such an important part of this campaign. Without your support, we would not have the resources necessary to address crises like these — and these chimps would have been truly abandoned. Instead, they are thriving.
I wanted to share this photo with you — it’s a baby chimp who is now living on one of the islands. As one of our best supporters, I’m hoping you can help us make a very important decision — what to name him.
Without you, this work would not be possible. So please, let us know what you think!
