Campus without Cruelty

Campus without Cruelty is an Animal Justice Project campaign launched in 2016 to tackle animal experiments taking place on university campuses across the UK. Currently, government figures show that around half of all experiments take place in universities. Campus without Cruelty has three main aims:

  • To raise awareness among students and staff at universities, and other educational institutions, on the issue of animal experimentation
  • To encourage students not to use live animals as part of their education, and provide guidance on how to do this
  • To carry out positive outreach on university campuses to spread the message of compassion and animal rights


Student or member of a local animal rights group? Get active! Why not carry out positive outreach on your university campus and inform students that violence has no place in education, or modern-day society!
