Since March, the airline has reportedly flown as many as 5,000 monkeys into the nation, posing a grave, probably deadly public well being threat and inflicting immense struggling to the animals, who’re locked inside wood crates and pitch-black cargo holds for days at a time. Final month, the Worldwide Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the world’s most complete info supply on the worldwide conservation of animals, elevated the menace to long-tailed macaques—the very monkey species being transported by EGYPTAIR—from “weak” to “endangered.” These monkeys at the moment are among the many most endangered species on the planet. The IUCN has acknowledged unequivocally that “the analysis business must turn out to be accountable for the results of [its] actions on wild non-human populations.” PETA notes that just about each main airline on the planet has stopped transporting monkeys to laboratories.

“Behind EGYTPAIR’s secret offers with the animal experimentation business are monkeys who shriek and die in cargo holds and in laboratories,” says PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo. “PETA is looking on EGYPTAIR to cease ignoring these animals’ cries and ban laboratory-bound shipments as different airways have accomplished.”

PETA—whose motto reads, partly, that “animals aren’t ours to experiment on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
