Teaching & Training

Animals used for teaching and training are not being used to discover, prove, or develop new ideas and techniques and should only be used where it is based on sound ethical justification and proven educational objectives that demonstrate pedagogical merit. Animals are used in teaching in order to communicate scientific concepts. They are used in training to develop manual skills and expertise in specific techniques (for example, animal handing or surgical skills). However, in some cases non-animal teaching and training alternatives exist.
