      Debi Durham the first to serve as primate specialist for animal rights
      organization

      Thousands of miles separate Mount Vernon, where Debi Durham grew up,
      from the humid rain forest of northern Madagascar, where she lived in
      a tent for nearly three years.

      As a Ph.D. candidate studying animal behavior, Durham went to the
      island to study three species of lemurs, the small primates that are
      native there.

      Next week, she will start a new job as a primate specialist with
      People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), becoming the first
      person to hold that position in the Norfolk, Va.-based organization.

      PETA is best known for its infiltration of animal research facilities
      and outlandish public-awareness campaigns to call attention to animal
      rights issues. The group advocates an end to all experimentation on
      chimpanzees and other primates.

      Durham, 35, received a Ph.D. from the University of California-Davis
      in 2003. Working from her home in Kirkland, she will be a liaison
      between PETA and scientists who use primates in their biomedical
      research.
