The BUAV team returns to the island of Mauritius to promote non-animal alternatives in research

18/03/2014

This week representatives from the BUAV, including our scientific advisor Dr. Jarrod Bailey, are in Mauritius to hold a series of meetings and events.

A Pre-Clinical Research Bill, a bill which will promote the use of animals - in particular primates - in experiments, is due to be presented to the Mauritius Parliament in the new Parliamentary session.

The BUAV is holding a series of meetings to discuss the scientific criticism of the use of primates and other animals in research while raising awareness of the non-animal alternative methods that are available.

On Friday 21st March, the BUAV, in collaboration with the Department of History and Political Science of the University of Mauritius, will be holding a presentation by Dr Jarrod Bailey entitled: ‘A critique of the use of non-human primates and other animals in research’.

Save Our Monkeys would like to invite our supporters in Mauritius to attend this event:
