The last 50 chimpanzees owned by the National Institutes of Wellness are headed to Chimp Haven—a federally funded sanctuary in Keithville, Louisiana.
The retirement strategy, announced on Wednesday, comes two years right after the agency decided to phase out chimp research following a report that discovered such analysis unnecessary. At the time, the agency mentioned it would set stricter requirements for primate analysis and retire most of its 360 chimps, hanging on to only 50. These remaining chimps were set aside in case researchers required them in specific circumstances, such as emergency research in the course of a public health crisis.
But since the 2013 choice, no proposals to use the chimps have moved forward. And, in June of this year, the US Fish and Wildlife Service granted chimps endangered-species protection, which meant that researchers would require to apply for permits to conduct invasive chimp investigation.
