Following the BUAV’s recent investigation at Imperial College London, which revealed the appalling plight of animals in laboratories, we have worked with MPs to table EDM 110 to highlight the need for an independent enquiry into our findings. Please join our campaign by writing to your MP and asking them to sign EDM 110 today.
Help the BUAV create lasting change in the policy and legislation in the UK – use our lobby tool to engage with your MP on the key animal testing issues.
One of the BUAV’s missions is to create change in policy, legislation and practice by influencing decision-makers. We meet with high profile politicians, asking them to support and include our policies in their party’s plans. Even small changes in government policy can have a massive impact on the lives of millions of animals. And we are successful! In 1997, the BUAV won a ban on the testing of cosmetic products on animals, the result of a small change in the policy of one government department. More recently, our campaign to end testing household products on animals has won Government support. Find out more about our policy work.
Using the law is also a central part of the BUAV’s campaigning. Ethical and scientific arguments may lie at the heart of the debate but ultimately, animal experiments are sanctioned by legislation in the UK and internationally. Find out more about our legal work.
With our supporters behind us we can achieve real change for animals in laboratories. Please Lobby Your MP to help us create a cruelty-free world.
