The New Zealand Anti-Vivisection Society is Aotearoa's primary charity defending animals used in science.

Our mission is to end animal experimentation and the harmful use of animals for research, testing and teaching in Aotearoa - for animals, humans, and science!

We advocate scientifically valid, non-animal-based methods of research, testing and teaching at the same time as spreading awareness on animal experimentation and its lack of scientific value to humans.
