Census of Chimpanzees at Alamogordo Primate Facility
The census lists the name, number, sex and birthdate of each of the chimpanzees.
The census also includes chimpanzees who were once living at Alamogordo Primate Facility but who now reside at the New Iberia Research Center in New Iberia, Louisiana—currently the largest chimpanzee laboratory in the world and the location of our 2009 undercover investigation.
Most of the chimpanzees listed are considered elderly—25 years old for males and 30 years olds for females.* The oldest chimpanzee, Flo, will turn 53 in September.
For more extensive information about all of the chimpanzees who are currently living at Alamogordo Primate Facility or who have lived there in the past, visit Project R&R: Release and Restitution for Chimpanzees in U.S. Laboratories.
