Summary

The beleaguered Coulston Foundation, formerly the largest chimpanzee research facility in the United States, is no longer in the primate research business. On 16 September the Florida-based Center for Captive Chimpanzee Care took over Coulston's Alamogordo, New Mexico, facility. The new caretaker plans to retire the animals from research, eventually relocating many to a sanctuary in Florida.
