Our Statement on the Care of Chimpanzees in Liberia

The New York Blood Center (NYBC) is a leader in blood related research and its work has led to the saving of countless lives. Some of that research relied on the use of chimpanzees for testing and as a result NYBC should provide financial support for the care of these animals.

MetLife has been actively urging NYBC to work with the Humane Society to reach a sustainable, long-term solution for the care of the chimpanzees in Liberia. We will continue blood collection as it is essential to support the lives of our fellow New Yorkers, but MetLife has informed NYBC that we will not consider future financial support until a solution is found.
