IPPL’s History

Since 1973, under the leadership of our founder, Dr. Shirley McGreal, IPPL has spent decades fighting to protect and save primates around the world. These significant efforts included fighting smugglers, exposing the fate of primates in research labs, establishing a gibbon sanctuary and much more.
