More than a thousand people are wearing Primate Freedom Tags from the Wisconsin Regional Primate Research Center (WRPRC).

Over 1200 primates including common marmosets, rhesus macaques, stump-tailed macaques, and cottontop tamarins are experimented on day in and day out. Wisconsin is not a good place to be if you are a monkey.

Rick Bogle, addressing crowd in front of Harlow Lab at WRPRC.

The center has been receiving letters and phone calls from Primate Freedom Tag wearers, who request information about the monkey on their Primate Freedom Tag. Questions such as: Is he/she still alive? Is he/she housed alone or with another monkey? How is this monkey being used? and What are the future plans for this monkey? are only rarely answered. If you are one of those who have not received answers to your specific questions, click here for some suggestions.

WRPRC's public relations director, Jordana Lenon, has made the claim that those who have written to WRPRC, simply seeking information on the monkeys being experimented on there, might be breaking the law by doing so.

LEARN ABOUT the types of research being funded by the National Institutes of Health conducted at the WRPRC. Most researchers (e-mail addresses provided) are conducting many studies at any one time.

And you, as taxpayers, are paying their salaries.
