Air France is one of the largest traffickers of primates in the world. The airline claims to be "making the sky the best place on Earth" – so why does it continue to ship terrified monkeys to laboratories to face imprisonment and torture?
Almost every other major airline in the world has shown compassion by refusing to transport monkeys for animal testing – including United, Aer Lingus, Air China, American, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, China Southern, Delta, Lufthansa and Qantas. Air France even cancelled an individual shipment of primates after a public outcry by PETA and its supporters. Now we must convince the airline to end this barbarism once and for all.
Many of the monkeys Air France flies to laboratories have been snatched from the wild and ripped away from their families. Crammed into tiny wooden crates in the cargo holds of passenger flights, they endure a dark and terrifying journey. After landing, the animals are transported to facilities such as Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories and Covance in the US, where they face horrors such as mutilation, poisoning, food deprivation, infection with painful diseases and psychological torment.
Please ask Air France to stop giving primates a one-way ticket to experimentation and death. Tell officials that you won't be flying with the airline until it ends this cruel practice!
