The University of Auckland has signed up to a New Zealand (NZ) agreement pledging openness on the use of animals in research and teaching.
The agreement, signed by 21 organisations, was launched recently at a conference in Queenstown held by the Australian and New Zealand Council for the Care of Animals in Research and Teaching (ANZCCART).
The commitments include-
“The judicious use of animals in research remains vital to scientific, medical, and veterinary progress,” said Dr Jodi Salinsky, animal welfare officer and veterinarian at the University of Auckland. “We look forward to the day when animals are no longer needed and honour the animals for the advances made that allow treatments, vaccinations, and cures for diseases to be found.”
