Emily Deschanel: Actress and Animal Activist

This is totally something we could see Temperance Brennan doing! According to green gossip blog Ecorazzi, Emily Deschanel, the actress who plays the forensic doc, is in a fight to save 14 elderly chimpanzees recently sent to a research center where animal testing takes place.

In a letter to the National Institutes of Health, the real life vegan argues, “These aging chimpanzees were moved […] to a facility that conducts painful, invasive experiments on animals and has a long history of animal abuse.”

Emily isn’t hoping to set them free, but rather return them to the rehab and retirement center where they were living before. “All of them […] deserve to live out their lives in peace.”

It’s easy to understand why she received the Human Advocate Award by the Humane Society at the end of last year for her ongoing efforts to speak out on behalf of animal issues.
