Transportation of Lab Animals - Threats from and Solutions to Animal Extremism interference

Speaker

Abstract

The transportation of laboratory animals is a critical step in obtaining the proper strain of animal that best fits the researchers needs. Animal Extremist groups have made this transportation their number one target in recent years. This targeting has been resulted in over 65 airlines either being pressured or making a business decision not to transport any animal used in research. This has had an impact on the development of life saving vaccines, like ones that target Ebola and HIV. Industry needs to understand the threats that these groups pose, and know that there are several solutions to protect the animals and to ensure an adequate supply. This presentation will:
 

1. Review the current threats to the animal transportation industry and provide a general assessment of what the next two to three years may look like if adequate security measures are not implemented or we ignore the seriousness of the problem.

 

2. Concrete and effective ways to ensure that we are maintaining the highest standards in the transportation of research animals and to provide tangible solutions to the threats posed by ARE groups.
