Aotearoa’s only charity 100% dedicated to stopping animals from being used in experimentation.

Together with you, our mission is to end animal experimentation and advocate for safer, more ethical animal-free research methods.

Animals do not need to die

Every five minutes one animal dies in the name of science in Aotearoa, New Zealand. By the time you will have clicked on the kettle and poured yourself a cuppa, we will have lost one more.

One sentient life is too many, especially when there are superior animal-free research methods available.

A brighter future for animals

The ability to use and develop animal-free and human-relevant research methods would help not only animals but also the integrity and quality of the science we are producing in NZ.

With better science comes more opportunities to help animals and people and improve the long-term health standards of NZ.

We will not stop with you by our side. Together, we can end animal experimentation in NZ.

With your help we can end animal experimentation in Aotearoa.
