A ban on the exportation of monkeys out of Israel goes into effect on January 1. As we reported on Wednesday, Mazor Farms is now making a desperate effort to ship its captive primates out of the country while there is no Minister of the Environment in place. In order to stop them, Israeli activists with The Monkey Struggle are demonstrating today for the people who now have the power to stop this. In coordination with their efforts, we are asking the rest of the world to take a moment to send a letter to appeal to the highest levels of the Israeli government for these monkeys’ lives.

Suggested Subject Line
Please Stop the Illegal Mazor Farms Monkey Shipment
Dear Ministers and Officials,
Since the Minister of the Environment resigned recently, it has come to my attention that Mazor Farms is seeking to use this loophole to bypass protocols that have been put in place by the Israeli government and get an illegal shipment out of the country. Under laws that exist until December 31, their monkeys may only be shipped out of Israel if they are going to a “medical research facility.” After January 1, 2015, a complete ban will go into effect outlawing these exports entirely. I admire your country for taking this progressive and necessary step.
