Target: Philippine Airlines
Goal: Commend Philippine Airlines decision to stop shipping primates for experiments
Following a large protest from PETA and all of its supporters, Philippine Airlines recently made the decision to end its involvement in primate experimentation. Commend Philippine Airlines for upholding animal rights and cutting its ties to animal cruelty.
Over the last few months, a widespread effort was made to contact the airline and voice discontent with the its decision to continue shipping primates out for experimentation. Philippine Airlines was one of three companies that still ships primates between Indonesia and the companies that facilitate experiments.When the monkeys reach their destination, they are experimented on without restraint and killed.
At first making false statements about its involvement in this process, Philippine Airlines has come clean cut off all primate shipping activity. This is an important step in the fight against animal cruelty acted out in experiments. PETA expects that Philippine Airline’s decision to stop shipping monkeys will have a serious impact on the primate experimentation industry since it’s the only source that ships from Indonesia.
Sign this petition and commend Philippine Airlines for making the responsible decision to stop shipping primates to experiment facilities.
Dear Philippine Airlines,
I am writing to commend you on your decision to stop shipping primates to experimental facilities. Cutting your ties within the primate experimentation industry was a very sound and respectable decision.
As an advocate for animal rights I am grateful that you have done your part in lessening the amount of primates that are being flown to facilities to be experimented on. Primates suffer through cruel experiments and are then killed when airlines allow them to be shipped on their planes. Securing passage on a flight is almost identical to securing a death warrant for primates.
As you are the only provider that ships primates from Indonesia, which has a large primate-breeding facility, I am hopeful to see a negative impact on the primate experimentation industry. Your decision to alleviate Philippine Airlines ties with this industry was a large step and I hope it will be upheld by your company forever.
