Four Decades of Suffering, Death, and Failed Monkey Experiments in Colombia

Colombian experimenter Manuel Elkin Patarroyo has been capturing owl monkeys from the Amazonas since 1984 to use them in malaria experiments aimed at producing a vaccine. All he has achieved is bringing a monkey species to the brink of extinction. In only 14 months at Patarroyo’s facility, Fundación Instituto de Inmunología de Colombia (FIDIC), 47 monkeys died from cannibalism, sepsis, tetanus, asphyxiation, heart attacks, heatstroke, and more. Some of them were denied veterinary care and were abandoned to die in pain.

It’s time that the Colombian government banned the capture of monkeys for dubious biomedical experiments. Please take action at
