Calling all Target Zero Heroes

Animals in laboratories need you to be their hero

Calling all Target Zero Heroes

In 2021, there were over three million procedures on animals in laboratories in Britain.

That’s millions of animals suffering, many of them killed. But we can end this – if we have enough heroes speaking out for these animals, we can Target Zero animal experiments in the UK. Together, we are up to the challenge, and we’re already making a difference. The number of animal tests required to satisfy product safety rules fell by 24% last year. Painful skin sensitisation tests designed to check for allergic reactions also fell by 21% and, for the first time ever, there were zero eye irritation tests on animals in the UK. 

We want to build on these successes, but we can’t do it without you! Will you be a Target Zero Hero and stand up for animals in laboratories?

To Target Zero animal tests, we are campaigning for:

  • An ambitious government-led strategy to end experiments on animals
  • A government minister solely dedicated to leading a fast transition to animal free science

Join our growing group of Target Zero Heroes demanding action to reach Target Zero experiments on animals in the UK.
