Stop the primate trade from Mauritius - The Petition Site
An investigation carried out by the BUAV in 2009-2010 has obtained shocking evidence of the cruelty and suffering involved in the trapping and breeding of wild monkeys on Mauritius. Each year, thousands are torn from their families and jungle homes and either exported directly for research or imprisoned on farms to produce offspring to be exported to laboratories around the world, where they will likely suffer and die in experiments.
Mauritius is the second largest supplier of primates (long-tailed macaques) for the research industry in the world. The monkeys are exported to the European Union (mainly to the UK, France and Spain), the USA and Israel.
