A Petition to Protect All Chimpanzees:

Kristin Bauer van Straten (vampire Pam)Truebies, Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pam de Beaufort) has a new cause. She has started a petition to save the chimpanzee. The petition on change.org. is to get the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to protect all chimps. Chimps have been recognized as an endangered species by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service since 1990, but only wild chimps are protected. She wants the chimps in captivity saved under the same Endangered Species Act (ESA). She explains:

“I’ve been working with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine to speak out against chimpanzee experiments in the United States. We now have an opportunity to protect all chimpanzees in captivity in the U.S.”
