interNICHE was granted $2,500 for a project promoting the replacement of the harmful use of animals in education by educating members of the scientific teaching community about alternatives to the use of animals in life science education. The first phase saw the distribution of two hundred copies of the book ‘From Guinea Pig to Computer Mouse: alternative methods for a progressive, humane education’ throughout Australia. The project was widely promoted to the scientific educational community through the ANZCCART email list and at the ANZCCART conferences in 2005 and 2006. It also received coverage in the email lists and newsletters of several Australian animal protection groups. The grant further funded the distribution of 30 copies of Helena Pedersen’s book ‘Humane Education in Laboratory Classes. Aspects, Attitudes and Implications’.
