Choose Compassion over Cruelty
Did you know that millions of animals, including cats, frogs, and pigs, are still commonly dissected in science classrooms?
Help us end this outdated practice by supporting humane, non-animal methods that allow students to learn anatomy and physiology without harming ANY sentient beings.
With classrooms and conferences back to being in person once again, our Animalearn team is in the field, helping teachers and school administrators discover the lasting benefits of humane science education.
Animalearn has always worked constructively with educators, students, and schools to end the harmful use of animals in education. We know that:
- An estimated 10 to 12 million animals are dissected in American schools every year.
- A recent systematic review of studies of non-animal methods versus animal dissection published in American Biology Teacher showed that 95% of students learned just as well as--and in most cases better—when using non-animal alternatives compared to animal dissection.
- Non-animal methods enable students to learn—and instructors to teach—without exposure to hazardous chemicals.
OUR SOLUTION: Animalearn’s unique FREE lending library, The Science Bank, offers hundreds of innovative life science education products, including access to comprehensive online learning resources for teachers and students who need innovative and humane options for all learning spaces.
Please consider giving a gift today to support humane science education. Your thoughtful contribution will make a tremendous difference for animals, people, and the planet.
