The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced Friday that all chimpanzees will now be classified as endangered species. The distinction follows a 2010 petition from primatologist Jane Goodall to erase the difference in legal status between chimpanzees in captivity (considered “threatened”) and those in the wild (deemed “endangered”). Now chimpanzees held in captivity will receive the same protection as those in the wild. Any research, interstate trade, and export or import involving the animals will now require permits from the federal agency come September.

I don't know what effect if any this will have on Arti A Pee, I'm not sure weather he is an orangutan, gorilla chimpanzee or just a panzee

You are just looking for a banana upside the head ain't you? Or maybe you're hoping he'll just throw them at you and you won't have to buy your own.
