Air France to Stop Transporting Research Monkeys

DALLAS – Air France (AF), one of the major airlines still transporting monkeys for scientific research, recently announced that it would stop doing so.

Monkeys from Mauritius, an island nation in the Indian Ocean, have previously been transported by the airline. But the French flag carrier stated via Twitter last week that it would stop as soon as its present contractual obligations with research groups come to an end.

The demand for monkeys has risen in recent years, with COVID-19 research further adding the need for more lab animals. However, there are workarounds research labs can implement.
