NZAVS (endinganimaltestingnz on IG) is asking the NZ Government to commit to phasing out the use of animals for science as technology permits.
"The continued use of animal experiments is driven by many different factors such as outdated laws, poorly allocated funding, a lack of openness and transparency, conservative mindsets and more.
NZAVS has been fighting to end animal testing since 1978 so we are experts on these many barriers that are preventing us from creating a better future for animals, people, and science.
To achieve the replacement of animals used for science wherever possible, we need policy advances and leadership from the NZ Government."
They're calling on the NZ Government to:
1. Commit to phasing out the use of animals for science as technology permits.
2. Commit to phasing out the requirements in NZ legislation for animal testing.
3. Allocate funding for the use and development of non-animal-based research, testing and teaching methods.
