Gruen’s “Last 1,000” Chimps Website Featured

In the wake of a recent announcement by the National Institutes of Health that about 450 research chimpanzees under its purview would be retired and moved to sanctuary, the media has featured a new website by Prof. Lori Gruen. The site, “The Last 1,000” Chimpanzees, documents 1,000 chimps by name that are currently housed in biomedical and behavior research labs, and tracks their movement to sanctuary.

Gruen is professor of philosophy, professor of feminist, gender and sexuality studies, professor of environmental studies. She previously created a website, “The First 100,” memorializing the first 100 chimps used in scientific research.
