5 Ways PETA Is Helping Animals in Laboratories This Week

  1. PETA pal and honorary board member Edie Falco joined PETA scientists and physicians at a congressional briefing highlighting the need to adopt the modern, human-relevant research methods presented in PETA’s landmark Research Modernization Deal.
  2. The University of Bath and the University of Bristol are still in hot water for refusing to end their forced swim tests. PETA U.K. scientist Dr. Julia Baines emerged victorious after debating an animal-testing apologist during an event hosted by the University of Bath’s student societies, and it wasn’t long before a human-sized “rat” appeared near both universities, offering passersby free face masks in a jab at the vile near-drowning test.
  3. PETA has teamed up with Colombian street artist Praxis to plaster cities near national primate research centers with thought-provoking images of traumatized baby monkeys—reminding federal officials and the public why these notorious laboratories must be shut down.
  4. Our “dinosaurs” tracked President Joe Biden to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), urging him to appoint a visionary new head for the agency—plus, our eye-catching ads in The Washington Times demanded an end to the scientific Stone Age.
  5. We’re calling on NIH to prohibit experimenters who violate animal protection guidelines from using animals.
