PLEASE read & HELP!! Chimpanzees are #EndangeredSpecies species. I was in one of the cages deemed suitable for them - what is happening is NOT ok.
We need to stop the overseas transfer of Agatha, Elvira, Faye, Fritz, Lucas, Tara, and Georgia from Yerkes’ lab in Atlanta to @winghamwildlifepark Kent, England.
Please guys take a few moments and contact British Airways - they are identified as the last airline scheduled to ship the 7 Yerkes chimps from Atlanta, GA to the U.K.
Contact: Bill Ribeyro, Account Manager, British Airways World Cargo via firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, call Mr. Ribeyro at the Atlanta cargo office directly at 678-809-9990.
Ask #BritishAirways to:
- Please REFUSE any future ‘cargo’ transport requests from Emory’s #YerkesNationalPrimateResearchCenter in Atlanta, GA to the U.K. - Tell them it is unacceptable that living beings are placed in small enclosures to be shipped like cargo to endure delays, frightening inspections loud and strange noise, and potentially dangerous temperature fluctuations on their extremely long journeys. Then once in the UK, to have to then endure a long cross country trip of about 5 more hours. - Let them know the Yerkes 7 #Chimpanzees have already endured enough…they should not be shipped off in a cargo hold overseas only to be placed on public exhibition for the zoo’s financial gain. They deserve no less than retirement at one of several U.S. sanctuaries (one within 90 miles of Yerkes’ lab) to live the remainder of their lives in peace and safety.
