At the Kendall Project, we support organizations whose primary goal is to stop the use of chimps and other primates in the entertainment industry. We are NOT an anti-captivity group. We believe that organizations such as AZA accredited zoos, the Chimpanzee Species Survival Plan, and many great ape sanctuaries have made great strides in educating the public on chimpanzee natural history and conservation, and the animals in their care serve as "ambassadors" for their wild counterparts, thus promoting an appreciation for wildlife and the desire to conserve wild chimp natural habitat. Please support your local AZA Zoos and organizations that promote conservation and welfare of both captive and wild apes and monkeys.
