My name is Camila, I'm 21 years old. I live in Santiago, and study law at the University of Chile. I'm a vegan activist at EligeVeganismo, and collaborator at Vegan.cl. I live with my parents and my furry babies, Pussyta, Diana, Tony, and Candy.
This is Rachel, a 30 year-old chimpanzee who lives at Fauna. Prior to coming to the sanctuary in 1997, Rachel endured 11 years in isolation as a research laboratory subject enduring horrendous treatments, including being anesthetized 235 times during testing for artificial sweeteners for NutraSweet.
