Governing agency reverses status of Chimps

1 post in this topic

"the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service ("FWS") announced its proposal to classify captive chimpanzees as endangered under the Endangered Species Act ("ESA"), reversing nearly forty years of failed policies that only brought chimpanzees closer to extinction. The proposed rule would end the "split-listing" of chimpanzees, which incongruously affords endangered species protections to wild members of the species residing in Africa while simultaneously denying any protection at all to their captive counterparts living in the United States."

The ramifications of this decision could be huge.
