Anne explained that because of the recent announcement by the National Institutes of Health to accept the results of an independent report requested by Sen. Tom Udall and Sen. Jeff Bingaman, the use of chimpanzees in research will stop. The senators are asking NIH to move the surviving chimpanzees at the Alamogordo Primate Facility to a sanctuary.
