An Openness Agreement on Animal Research and Teaching in New Zealand

Ensuring that the public are well informed about what animal research involves and the role it plays in the overall process of scientific discovery

Caring for the Animals We Use in Research and Teaching

ANZCCART is the Australian & New Zealand Council for the Care of Animals in Research and Teaching. We are located in both New Zealand and Australia.  Our websites contain information for animal carers, animal ethics committee members, scientists, schools as well as other interested parties.

Through these websites, we hope to further the primary goals of ANZCCART which include promoting the responsible use of animals in research and teaching, and informed discussion and debate within the community regarding these matters. When viewing our websites please be mindful that legislation and some animal welfare information will differ between our countries.
