"That over 92,000 non-human animals perished in Irish laboratories in 2022 exposes the continuing and truly shameful indifference of many in the scientific 'community' to the infliction of gross mental and physical pain on our fellow sentient beings."
Catherine MorrowIAVS Chairperson
"One silver lining of the 2022 statistics is that it represents a reduction in the overall numbers of animals harmed compared with 2021, with a drop of 28,619. However, the IAVS is deeply concerned that this positive trend may not be sustained. The HPRA says it washes its hands of its responsibility to work to reduce animal testing – instead it leaves the fate of animals’ largely to the mercy of commercial and technological developments."
Dr Dan LyonsIAVS Policy Consultant
"Despite the existence of non-animal testing methods, the government continues to licence animal testing for cosmetic botulinum while doing nothing to facilitate the sharing of knowledge regarding these non-animal tests, and so the unnecessary suffering continues."
