• Question: Do you think by inviting the general public to come and see the animals for themselves, this will change people's minds in terms of thinking that animal testing is wrong?

      I think that the public are given alot of information to do with medical research and the use of animals. Alot of this information is not reliable and as such does not represent what actually happens inside those facilties that keep animals for research. I do believe that inviting the general public into facilities will allow them to see first hand how animals are kept, they can see with their own eyes what it is like inside a facility and this can then spark them wanting to find more reliable information. A good place to start is the ‘Understanding Animal Research’ website as this gives a wide ranging amount of information from across the industry. Thankyou for a well thought out question Isabelle.
