Educate on Animal Use in Science
NAVS’ opposition to the use of animals in research, testing and education is based on credible scientific evidence and compelling ethical arguments that vivisection is cruel and unnecessary, and that it can produce invalid, misleading results that can ultimately be harmful to people. Overreliance on animal models often sidetracks meaningful scientific progress while wasting taxpayer dollars and other resources.
In this section of our website, we offer an in-depth look at the ways animals are used in science, and discuss the scientific issues surrounding animal testing.
