We are overjoyed to announce that Monash University have confirmed that the live rabbit dissections are not taking place this year. The classes have been replaced with a humane non animal alternative.
Thank you so much to everyone who sent in objections, took part in protests, or contributed to the campaign in any way. This huge victory for the rabbits could not have been achieved without you!
However, the campaign is not over yet. Monash University are refusing to stop ALL live animal dissections.
This means that there is nothing to stop the university resuming these experiments again in a few years, or using other animals in similar experiments. Monash has even indicated that there are other live animal experiments planned for this year.
Until we can get a guarantee from Monash that they are putting an end to ALL live animal experiments in the classroom, the campaign will continue. Please sign up to our e-mail list (or facebook and myspace pages) to receive the latest information about what you can do to stop live animal dissections at Monash University.
