HELPING TEACHERS INSPIRE COMPASSION FOR ANIMALS, PEOPLE & THE ENVIRONMENT
- Replace vertebrate animals with invertebrates, lower life forms, tissue/cell cultures or computer simulations
- Reduce the number of animals without compromising statistical validity
- Refine the experimental protocol to lessen pain or distress to the animals.
The 3R’s approach is also taken by the Canadian Council on Animal Care, the national body that oversees the welfare of animals used in research in post-secondary institutions and research facilities in Canada. You will be preparing your students for future research by having them follow this approach.
