Egyptair - yet more miserable flights


Mis à jour le 20 June 2022

The airline company Egyptair is back in Cambodia... We suspect them once again of picking up monkeys to send to the United States to research laboratories where they will be poisoned (toxicity testing).

Edit from 18 May

576 monkeys are on board @EgyptAir flight MS5052 which will land in New York. They will then be taken to Charles River Laboratories...

Egyptair is henceforth playing a major role in the global trade of non-human primates for research purposes. The airline transports thousands of individuals from Cambodia and Mauritius to their death in American laboratories. Thanks to an employee at JFK airport in New York, we have been warned about these wretched transportations. Not much later than last week, on 12 May, Egyptair transported 462 long-tailed macaques, exported for Bioculture and Noveprim, from Mauritius to JFK for the Charles River account.

Each imprisoned on their sides in a small travel carrier, the monkeys travelled in the hold. They endured an approximately 22-hour flight, with one stopover in Cairo and many additional hours on the road in a lorry to and from the airports. A gruelling journey before certain death in atrocious suffering at the laboratories. What a horrendous way to treat these sensitive and intelligent animals!

Add your voice to that of Action for Primates, One Voice, and Stop Camarles by sending an email urging Egyptair to join the many airline companies who have refused to be implicated in this cruel global trade of monkeys:

This is despicable and all too typical. THESE PRIMATES ARE BEING TORTURED AND MURDERED AND YOU DON'T CARE. Would you care if the same thing were to happen to you and your family?
