Video: Replacing Animal Use in Science and Education


In July 2020, Animal People attended the annual United Nations High Level Political Forum as a member of the Animal Issues Thematic Cluster. As part of this event, Animal People Executive Director Wolf Gordon Clifton conducted a series of interviews with experts on various aspects of animal protection and sustainability. We will be releasing recordings of those interviews here on Animal People Forum.

In the video below, Dr. Nick Jukes, coordinator of InterNICHE, speaks with Wolf Gordon Clifton. They discuss the drawbacks to animal use in science and education, promising developments in non-animal alternatives, and the potential effects of the race for a COVID-19 vaccine on animal use in science.
