The Spanish Society for Laboratory Animal Sciences (SECAL) used World Day for Laboratory Animals (24 April), as an opportunity to communicate on animal research.
EARA Member SECAL, created a video (in Spanish) with examples on the benefits of the biomedical animal research.
The message in the video “La experimentación animal da vida” (Animal research gives life) was repeated by board members of SECAL.
Research institutions from Spain and Latin America (including EARA Spanish Twitter) shared the video on social media with the hashtag #LaExperimentaciónAnimaldaVida.
Sergi Vila of SECAL, said the video as “a very positive initiative”, especially on the eve of the general election in Spain, where the Animalist Party (PACMA) has called for the ending of animal research.
