According to the UK Green Party website the Green Party will try to achieve the following if they gain power at the 2010 general election:
AR408 The Green Party is opposed to the harmful use in education of animals and of animal-derived materials where the animals have been killed specifically for this purpose.
The Party supports the replacement of the use of animals and animal material with methods such as models, mannequins, mechanical and computer-based simulators, films and interactive videos, plant experiments and observational and field studies, and human studies including self-experimentation.
The Party supports the educational use of animal cadavers and animal-derived materials where these have been ethically sourced, such as animals who have died naturally and animals who have been euthanased for humane reasons.
I would be interested to hear both positive and negative views on UK Green Party’s Animals in Education policies in the comments below?
