Animalearn operates The Science Bank, a dissection alternatives lending library, which provides alternatives to using animals, from basic dissection to psychology experiments. By participating in national teacher conferences, hosting workshops and in-service days and providing information to individuals who request assistance, Animalearn helps countless students, teachers, parents and other community members make their classrooms more humane.AAVS' Outreach division educates the public about animal issues through our award winning quarterly publication AV Magazine and bimonthly newsletter ActiVate For Animals, both of which are sent to all members and provide comprehensive, up-to-date information on animal experiments and alternatives. Outreach staff also speak at conferences and place advertisements to reach a large audience, exposing what occurs behind laboratory doors.The Alternatives Research and Development Foundation (ARDF) is AAVS' scientific affiliate. ARDF awards grants to scientists and educators working to develop non-animal methods and promotes alternatives through seminars and workshops as well as writing articles for various scientific publications.
There is no reason to hurt animals for: Makeup, drugs, skin. There is no reason for any of this crud. We are intelligent human beings. We know that you cannot drink bleach, we know that you cannot put anything in your eyes yet we are animal testing on rabbits.
We are paying for this crap with our money & there are other options that they have not to do this.
All I can Hope is that What Goes Around 10 Fold!!
In college, I was helped by AAVS more than any other organization in learning about alternatives to animal experimentation. AAVS helped me to educate other students also and was generous in donating educational materials to help me get the word out.
