Alamogordo Chimpanzee Move Postponed

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has confirmed that an aging colony of former research chimpanzees will not be returned to biomedical research for the time being. The 186 chimpanzees, which have lived free from invasive research for the past ten years while housed at a facility in Alamogordo, New Mexico, were to be moved this year to an active biomedical research laboratory in San Antonio, Texas.
