NZAVS Celebrates World Day for Lab Animals by Marching to Stop the Otago Animal Lab!
NZAVS were out in Dunedin today marching against the new $50 million animal lab at the University of Otago! We were supported by international and national organisations and individuals, including Humane Society International, Choose Cruelty Free, Humane Research Australia, and Beagle Freedom Project to commemorate World Day for Lab Animals!. We were also joined by celebrity animal-rights activist James Aspey! Heaps of our supporters came out to rally against the University of Otago's commitment to non-predictive, unethical animal-based research models. We showed the University that we will continue fighting against the new lab!!!
