Hundreds of Chimpanzees are going to be sent to a national sanctuary to retire in peace from all U.S. government labs, research scientists throughout the country agreed. Only 50 will be left for research.
However the expensive proposal to build the sanctuary calls for major cuts in grants for study research.
The new proposal suggests that chimps should only be used for research if there is no other way to study a human threat.
The Chimps haven was created on 200 acres of land in northwest Louisiana. The cap is aimed to be at $30 mil.
Some were disappointed that 50 chimps were still kept for research in the case that further research was approved.
However they did make it clear that the 50 chimps will be kept in much better conditions than the group was previously kept in.
