Kate Mara steps out in a leather jacket while running errands with a pal on Thursday (March 31) in West Hollywood, Calif.
The 33-year-old actress is back in town after traveling to Liberia, Africa with her younger sister Rooney Mara to visit more than 60 chimpanzees who were abandoned and left to die by the New York Blood Center one year ago.
The chimps were used for a decade in invasive research, but funding on the project was pulled and the animals were sent away.
“We are writing to urge New York Blood Center to renew your financial obligation to the more than 60 chimpanzees in Liberia you once used for invasive research. As you are aware, when you withdrew all support for these chimpanzees one year ago, you left them in a life-threatening situation,” the sisters wrote in an open letter. “If it had not been for the dedicated caretakers and emergency care from nonprofit organizations like The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International, these chimpanzees would surely have died horrible, slow and painful deaths from dehydration and starvation.”
