Spain passes law on rights for great apes

Published 06/30/08

"Great apes should have the right to life and freedom, according to a resolution passed in the Spanish parliament, in what could become landmark legislation to enshrine human rights for chimpanzees, gorillas, orang-utans and bonobos." Born Free USA united with API's UK-based colleague, the Born Free Foundation, has a similar interest in great apes through its core involvement in The Great Apes Survival Project (GRASP), a United Nations partnership that aims to lift the threat of imminent extinction faced by gorillas, chimpanzees, bonobos and orangutans across their ranges in equatorial Africa and south-east Asia.
