After
eight months of pressure from PETA and our supporters, the prestigious
scientific journal Nature has
confirmed that China Southern Airlines is no longer
transporting primates to the United States for use in experiments.

Because
there remain few viable options for exporting primates from China, primate
breeders and experimenters are currently in a panic about how to bring monkeys
into the U.S. to torment in laboratories. This victory comes after the airline canceled a shipment of 80
monkeys
to the U.S. last
August, where they were to be mutilated and killed in cruel experiments. China Southern halted
the shipment after receiving thousands of e-mails and hundreds of phone calls
from PETA supporters as well as a visit to its Los Angeles office from a PETA employee
dressed in a monkey costume.

Compassion in the Skies

China
Southern is China’s largest airline, and it joins Delta Air Lines, American
Airlines, Lufthansa, British Airways, and Virgin Atlantic, among others, in
refusing to transport primates to be tortured.

Getting Primates on the No-Fly List

Members
of PETA and Stop UBC
Animal Research
converged on the Animal
Transportation Association meeting in Vancouver, Canada, on Sunday to urge the
few remaining airlines that still deliver primates to desolation and torture in laboratories to stop accepting blood
money and ban the practice.

What You Can Do

Help
end shipments of primates to laboratories by asking this dwindling list of
airlines to transport only willing
passengers.
