Case studies & fact sheets
One of the roles of ANZCCART is to foster an open, honest and factually accurate debate of animal welfare topics in the setting of research and teaching.
In line with this aim, we have started putting together a series of case studies, each of which focuses on a currently contentious topic. These case studies simply aim to present a brief summary of current knowledge and some potentially useful references to reputable sources of additional information.

- Mulesing of sheep

- Ethical Guidelines for Australian School Students Using Animals for Educational Purposes
Using animals or their tissues in laboratory classes is a privilege which brings with it responsibilities that go well beyond the need to avoid cruelty to the animals. This pamphlet gives some advice to help students and teachers meet these responsibilities and to help them gain maximum benefit from using animals in laboratory classes.
