Oregon Regional Primate Research Center
If ORPRC is the last line of information on your Primate Freedom Tag, that means you have a personal connection with a monkey currently imprisoned in Beaverton, Oregon. There are hundreds of people wearing Primate Freedom Tags from ORPRC.

In January of 1999, the Oregon Regional Primate Research Center listed 2,365 living primates in their laboratory including white-fronted capuchins, brown capuchins, stump-tailed macaques, Japanese macaques, rhesus macaques, crab-eating macaques and squirrel monkeys. Thousands are living in solitary confinement.

Every morning is the same for these innocent monkeys. They awake to the sounds of the laboratory: the clanging of metal doors, keys, electronic devices, and the cries and whimpers of their fellow prisoners.

The authorities resort to intimidation by videotaping everyone who stands and speaks in opposition to the cruelties being performed behind the guarded walls of all such institutions.

Most are unable to see the primates beside them, since the cages are shrouded with metal on three sides, leaving only one view -- the view of the inside of the lab.

What was their crime?
