Experiments Using Non-human Primates 2021

In our news or take action pages, we report on the types of research to which non-human primates are being subjected. Bear in mind that these reports comprise only a tiny example of the dozens of experiments published each week. See elsewhere for examples from previous years.

Although we emphasise welfare issues with respect to how the research impacted on the individuals, please bear in mind that the non-human primates used were all essentially wild animals, even if bred in captivity. Because of this, the suffering and stress of being in captivity was inherent in every case.
