Welcome to the Australian & New Zealand Council for the Care of Animals in Research and Teaching (ANZCCART).

ANZCCART is located in both Australia and New Zealand.  Our websites contain information for animal carers, animal ethics committee members, scientists 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.

In line with ANZCCART’s long-standing policy of promoting the highest professional standards when it comes to research that involves the use of animals, at the 2017 December Meeting the ANZCCART Board formally endorsed both the ARRIVE and the PREPARE Guidelines.
