Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

PETA has just learned that Air France plans to transport 60 monkeys this Wednesday, February 1 from Africa to the U.S

PETA has just learned that Air France plans to transport 60 monkeys this Wednesday (February 1) from Africa to the U.S. for use in cruel and deadly experiments at the notorious Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories(SNBL), where PETA recently conducted an investigation that unveiled shocking cruelty.

We need your help to urge the airline to cancel this shipment!

If Air France moves ahead with its plans, the monkeys, supplied by an African facility run by the infamous Bioculture, will be crammed into tiny wooden crates and shipped to Paris in the dark and terrifying cargo hold of a passenger plane. The monkeys will then be loaded onto a cargo plane and transported to Chicago O’Hare International Airport. Upon their arrival in the U.S. on February 2, the monkeys will be subjected to yet another exhausting trip as they are loaded into the back of a truck and transported to SNBL. In total, these terrified monkeys will endure more than 80 hours of grueling transport before they arrive at SNBL, where they will likely be tormented and killed in cruel experiments.

The monkeys are currently scheduled to arrive in the U.S. this Thursday, February 2. With time running out, your voice is needed now.

Please call Air France’s cargo office at 773-686-8100, extension 2, and urge the airline to cancel this shipment and join the growing number of airlines who refuse to ship primates for use in invasive experiments.

Thank you for taking action for animals in laboratories!

    VICTORY! The fact that we got Air France to cancel the shipment has not only saved the monkeys from a torturous life, but hopefully Air France is one step closer to stopping their shipping of animals once and for all!

    This link and post should be posted to all of Air France’s websites — there are quite a few.

    If you live in the UK and you tried to call the number for Air France cargo office but would not connect to it try the following number which I made a request for them not to ship the Monkeys:
