This is an excerpt from ESAF’s report on the workshop.
The Second Egyptian Seminar on Alternatives to Animal Experiments in Education and Training was organized by ESAF (the Egyptian Society of Animal Friends) in association with the Biological and Geological Departments of the Faculty of Education at Ain Shams University.
The workshop brought together teachers, students, researchers, representatives of the General Organization of Veterinary Services, animal activists, campaigning organizations, media, and others to promote and help implement replacement alternatives across Egypt.
These were some of the topics covered:
Animal Care in Arabic culture
Alternatives to Animal Dissection
The Role of Civil Societies and Media in Animal Care
The Role of Curricula in Developing Awareness about Endangered Animals
The Use of Cells and Tissue Cultures as Alternatives to Animal Experiments
The Psychological, Educational, and Scientific Impact of Using Alternatives to Animal Experiments by Students
Legislation for Animal Care in Egyptian Law
