Campaigns that need your urgent attention
In 2015, over 4.14 MILLION ANIMAL EXPERIMENTS were completed in the UK alone. They included experiments on more than 600,000 ANIMALS which were categorised by researchers as causing “MODERATE” or “SEVERE” SUFFERING. Almost half (48 per cent) of experiments are conducted in universities. At the same time, over ONE BILLION ANIMALS are killed for “food” each year. Also at least 4.5 billion fish and 2.6 billion shellfish. That’s a total of OVER 8 BILLION ANIMALS in just one year. These forms of mass, institutionalised animal exploitation are the greatest social justice issues of modern time.
Special investigation: Sweden monkey imports and research exposed!
Animal Justice Project and Swedish Partner, Djurrättsalliansen, have received information on the import and use of 120 macaque monkeys for futile malaria experiments at Karolinska Institutet – a leading university in Stockholm, and have launched a campaign to halt the import and end the use of primates in research within Sweden, forever!Donate to cause
Some of our success stories
Secret War: the invisible victimsThis campaign is aimed at raising awareness of the animals being used in warfare research at places such as Porton Down - The Ministry of Defence’s secret laboratory in the UK. The Home Office sadly continues issuing licences at Porton Down so that researchers can carry our cruel experiments on animals. Animal Justice Project achieved widespread exposure of animal experiments at Porton Down in The Sunday Mirror in 2015, has carried out two outreach events: one in Central London at the ‘Animals in War’ memorial and the other in the town of Salisbury near to the Porton Down labs. We have distributed thousands of leaflets and postcards on this issue, urging the government to end warfare research on animals. Thousands of Animal Justice Supporters also sent emails directly to the Ministry of Defence.
More taxpayers money wasted on cruel experiments!Animal Justice Project USA has launched two groundbreaking Special Reports on the use of animals in recreational drugs research, as part of our Deadly Doses: A Legal Low campaign. In the report, we revealed the results of our investigation into ninety-five protocols involving animals, from twenty-one prestigious universities in the United States. The report was featured in the Washington Post and hundreds of people have used our online template to write off to Congress. In World Week for Animals in Laboratories, Animal Justice Project held a demonstration outside one of the key offenders, UCLA. Our US Representative, Julia Orr, gave a series of interviews at the event, including on with television journalist and author, Jane Velez-Mitchell
