ETHICAL CONCERNS

 

"Live demonstrations and experiments involving animals in precollege education are valuable ways to excite children about science. The Institute of Laboratory Animal Resources (ILAR) believes that the judicious use of animals in these settings should continue, as long as it is appropriately planned and supervised and does not interfere with an animal’s health and well-being."
