Teaching Material for Brazil

Project title:

Teaching Material for Brazil  

Project leader:

Thales de A. Tréz  

Financial support:    
Project background:

For many years, the organisation “InterNICHE” has tirelessly worked on its goal to replace animal experimentation in education. Supported by Animalfree Research and others, representatives from InterNICHE are travelling around the world in order to show universities and other educational institutions alternatives to animal experiments and to help implement these methods.  

By supporting a new book project of InterNICHE Brasil, Animalfree Research aimed to counteract the use of animals at Brazilian high schools and universities. The book intends to get to the bottom of the set of problems created by the use of live animals in education, viewing it from different professional perspectives. Its goal is to provide background and support the tour through Latin America for the distribution of alternative methods.
