Position Statement on Student Science Projects

The BC SPCA opposes the use of live animals for science projects unless:

  • the animal is a domesticated species that has been bred and raised according to the Five Freedoms; and
  • the purpose of the project is to demonstrate animal care practices or enriched
    animal environments that result in a higher quality of life for companion animals.
