New testimonies of student conscientious objection to animal experiments in education and training, provided by Dr Lisa Elsner and Dr Anya Yushchenko, are now online.

Both now professional veterinarians, Dr Elsner (Australia) and Dr Yushchenko (Ukraine and Canada) describe their successful campaigns as students against harmful animal use and the strategies employed to implement progressive, humane alternative methods. In particular, this included the alternative approach of working with animal patients instead of performing terminal animal labs for veterinary clinical skills and surgery training.

The testimonies contribute to an existing collection of over 20 others. Further testimonies from students and trainees from across the world are invited in order to share more experiences of curricular transformation. Please contact InterNICHE Co-ordinator Nick Jukes if you have a testimony to share.
