When a veterinary student at Western Australia’s Murdoch University from 1997 – 2001 I had to wage a protracted campaign for permission to complete my degree without harming animals in preclinical or surgical courses. I succeeded, and discovered I was not alone: students, some faculty members and others are currently creating a worldwide revolution against the harmful use of animals in education. I created this site to make available the resources I collected to others who might need them.
