In response to the front page article 'The Monkey Farm' in The Sunday Age on 25 November, an investigation into the government funded primate breeding facility in Gippsland, Victoria, we urge you to voice your opposition to the highly unethical practice of primate breeding and experimentation in Australia.
We ask you to please call, write or email the universities mentioned in the article who actively participate in primate research.

Humane Research Australia believes itís time Australia ended the shameful practice of primate breeding and experimentation. With your help we can achieve a ban on this unnecessary, archaic and cruel practice.
