Please help us stop the trade in primates for research. As part of Trading in Cruelty investigation, you can:
Ask Air France to join the many other airlines dissociating themselves from the cruel trade in primates for research. Suggested text below:
Dear Air France,
I am shocked to learn from the BUAV investigation of the trade in primates from Mauritius that Air France transports monkeys to research laboratories.
The trapping of wild monkeys is extremely cruel and causes great suffering. These highly intelligent and sensitive animals are packed in small crates, and travel as cargo on extremely long journeys. Many airlines have made the decision to dissociate themselves from the cruelty and suffering of the international trade in primates by refusing to transport primates destined for the research industry.
I hope that you will be moved not only by the findings of the BUAV investigation, but also by the impact that these revelations will have upon Air France’s international reputation.
I urge Air France to join this growing number of airlines and refuse to transport primates for research.
