Sadly, many people are unaware of the extent of animal experimentation within Australia. They know it involves pain and suffering to animals but falsely believe that it is necessary if we are to find cures to diseases. This popular misconception has allowed the suffering of millions of animals to continue unabated behind closed doors.
The Australian Association for Humane Research Inc was founded in October 1979 by Ms Elizabeth Ahlston.
Originally based in Sydney, AAHR has been considered the "premier" anti-vivisection group in Australia. We believe that animal experiments hurt people too. There IS a better way!
