Take Action: Urge Congress to Support the Great Ape Protection Act

Tell your Federal legislators to support an end to biomedical research on chimpanzees and ask that they cosponsor the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act (H.R.1513/S.810).

Because this is a new bill and new number, even if you previously signed a letter in support of ending chimpanzee research, it is vital that you PLEASE sign again.

Free Tony the Tiger From Truckstop Prison

Tell the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries to follow the regulations already set by the State of Louisiana to protect members of the public and tigers such as Tony by revoking Sandlin’s permit immediately.
On April 11, 2011, ALDF filed a lawsuit against the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and its secretary Robert Barham, arguing that he violated state law in granting a permit allowing Sandlin to exhibit Tony at the Tiger Truck Stop.
