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.
