PROBLEM: Sacrificing animals for education is unnecessary, wasteful, and costly, and merely demonstrates principles that are already known.
SOLUTION: Alternatives, which are humane, safe, effective, reusable, cost-efficient, and environmentally friendly.

A new school year brings a fresh start for students and teachers who want to make a difference for animals used in education. AAVS’ education division Animalearn is ready to assist those compassionate individuals who are eager to avoid dissection and embrace non-animal methods.

With your help, we can end classroom cruelty!

Animalearn works to raise awareness about the plight of animals used in education, and to effect change that benefits animals, students, and schools.

  • A recent nationwide survey found that 75% of U.S. adults believe that students should have the right to refuse to participate in animal dissection.
  • Studies show that students at all education levels, from kindergarten through college, learn as well or better with humane alternatives.
  • Alternatives enable students to learn and instructors to teach without harming animals.

MAKE THE SWITCH: Animalearn’s comprehensive library resource, The Science Bank, offers over 650 innovative life science education products—all available to borrow for free!

SPECIAL RECOGNITION! At the 10th World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences held last month, Animalearn, in collaboration with ARDF and the Institute For In Vitro Sciences, produced an award-winning poster that collates informative results from a survey of science teachers.
