Send Hercules and Leo to Save the Chimps Sanctuary
Action Alert from


Nonhuman Rights Project
March 2016


The NhRP is calling on all our supporters to contact the Governor of Louisiana and the Interim President of the University of Louisiana system to urge them to send Hercules and Leo to Save the Chimps sanctuary.

  • Louisiana residents: Call Governor John Bel Edward's office at (225) 342-0991 or (844) 860-1413
  • Non-residents: Call the Governor's office at (225) 342-7015 or (866) 366-1121
  • Email the Governor's office via this link
  • Call Interim Pres. of the Univ. of LA system Dr. Daniel D. Reneau, Jr at (225) 342-6950 or email him at

Tell them why you think moving Hercules and Leo from the New Iberia Research Center to Save the Chimps—at no cost to the people of Louisiana, where the taxpayer-funded NIRC is located—is the right thing to do.

Here's a link to our Call To Action, which includes a link to a new shareable Hercules and Leo petition on
