The suits asked that the chimps be freed to go to sanctuaries where they would have more freedom
I’ve just watched the most incredible film about communicating with animals. The message it brings us is so deep. I feel that Anna Breytenbach, a highly skilled telepathic inter-species communicator, holds an important key to the evolution of humanity and this planet.

Do elephants, dolphins, cats, magpies, mice, salmon, ants or bees know who they are? What do these animals make of themselves when they look in a mirror, see their reflection in water, hear their own or another’s song or howl, or smell themselves and others?

When most people picture biomedical research performed with animals, they think of horror movie scenes featuring frantic monkeys or whimpering dogs. However, these animals are used very rarely in modern research. The top five most popular animals used in research are a far cry from intelligent primates or canines.
