The scientific study of primates, as well as other human uses of primates and other animals, is a perennial hot topic in the news, society and legislatively. We encourage visitors to PIN to learn more and become critical thinkers about the many views related to animal research, animal welfare and animal rights. The International Animal Advocacy, Animal Rights and Animal Protection Organizations website is just one of many starting points to learn more about broader views surrounding animal research.
