As part of our Campus Without Cruelty campaign http://animaljusticeproject.com/campus-without-cruelty/, Animal Justice Project recently exposed UCL as being the third largest user of animals in research in the UK. We took this information to the gates of the university where our supporters publicly revealed the shocking truths behind the numbers and the animals used in UCL labs. You can read about the event here http://animaljusticeproject.com/2016/12/09/uclevent/ and view our gallery https://www.flickr.com/photos/129208916@N02/albums/72157675332776643.
We’re now asking UCL to tell us how they plan to progress and move away from animal research in the future.
On the UCL website www.uclac.uk/animal-research/replacement-reduction-refinement, UCL outlines a supposed commitment to ‘Replacing, Reducing, and Refining’ animal research. Animal Justice Project advocates the 1 R only - Replacing, however the page has not been updated since 2014 and the university provides no recent information on how they are currently undertaking their promise.
We therefore are asking UCL to provide a statement outlining how they are currently working towards the 1R – replacing animals in experiments. We want to see UCL seriously commit to the principles that they previously outlined in 2014.
