Save monkeys from research labs

Every year, tens of thousands of monkeys are flown to research labs around the world. Many of these monkeys are babies snatched from their mother's in the wild.

This wouldn't be possible without the airlines who fly these intelligent, socialable animals to labs where they will experience nothing but pain. Stuck in cages, they will never swing from trees or indulge in any other monkey behavior.

Office co-creator Ricky Gervais has put his weight behind the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection's (BUAV) campaign to end what they call 'cargo cruelty' because these amazing animals are treated like cargo by the airlines.

If you knew that the airline you use flew monkeys to research labs, would you still want to fly with them?

Here's a list of airlines that do and don't flt animals to research labs.
