CAMPAIGNS LIAISON AND RESEARCH OFFICER
Robyn first became aware of the use of animals in experiments over 25 years ago when a toxicology facility, that would use over 100,000 animals, was proposed for Victoria. This major facility (which did not go ahead) highlighted to Robyn the hidden industry that is vivisection (experimentation on live animals). Robyn believes that this outdated method of research has well and truly reached its use by date. Robyn holds a Diploma of Communications from Griffith University and has over 25 years experience in office administration.
