Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

Animal Voices Radio Show Fri Aug 20

Check out the full version here:

In this episode, Alison will give a review of the Wallflower restaurant.

We will be interviewing local activist Rita Mashinsky from the Stop UBC Animal Research campaign. This campaign started a few months ago in response to UBC’s secretive research on 100,000 animals per year. UBC maintains over thirty animal care facilities across its campus and throughout the rest of Vancouver.

Our Feature interview is with JB Mulcahy, Director of Operations at the Chimp Sanctuary Northwest (CSNW). J.B. Mulcahy began working with chimpanzees in 1998. Prior to CSNW, he worked for the Fauna Foundation, the first sanctuary to rescue chimpanzees used in HIV research. CSNW is home to Burrito, Foxie, Jamie, Jody, Missy, and Negra, also known as the Cle Elum Seven. They came from Buckshire Corporation, a company that rented out chimps for bio-medical research. The Cle Elum Seven were used for Hepatitis vaccine studies and for breeding. Go to the CSNW blog to learn about the chimps and watch videos of their journey and adventures
