If you don’t think this news is groundbreaking, you’ll have to admit that it’s interesting nonetheless. An orangutan named Sandra has been granted human-like rights by a high-level criminal appeals court in Argentina.
Sandra now has legal rights to life, liberty & freedom from harm.
She’s lived in a cage, at the Buenos Aeres Zoo, for twenty years. This court ruling will make sure she is sent to a much more comfortable home at a sanctuary.
I’ll sum up my opinion on this topic with a haiku:
one small step for apes
seeing our own reflection
and moving forward
