Dr Jane Goodall makes a plea on behalf of the monkeys of Mauritius
The internationally renowned primatologist speaks out to stop the suffering of monkeys in Mauritius
A recent opinion poll commissioned by Cruelty Free International revealed that 92% of tourists and potential tourists interviewed were not aware of the island’s export of monkeys for experiments. The survey found that over half (53%) of those who had been, want to go or would consider going on a holiday to Mauritius would not want to visit or revisit the island and would reconsider choosing Mauritius as a holiday destination after learning about the island’s monkey trade.
Michelle Thew, CEO of Cruelty Free International said: “We welcome Dr Jane Goodall’s support and hope that the Mauritius Government quickly recognises the fact that the monkey trade is tarnishing the country’s reputation. We urge Mauritius to say no to the cruelty and suffering that is being inflicted on these highly social and intelligent wild animals. If you would like to join us in ending the cruel trade and export of Mauritian monkeys for research, please sign the Save Our Monkeys petition today. Mauritius should be a paradise for everyone, including the monkeys.” Please show your support for the monkeys of Mauritius by signing and sharing our petition today.
